The ambitions of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra require continual investments, which cannot all be financed by subsidies and ticket sales. Fortunately, the orchestra also has the support of a circle of private benefactors – patrons – known as the Maecenasfonds. Thanks in part to their support we are able to present exceptional productions to the widest possible audience. Are you considering becoming a patron of the Rotterdam Philharmonic? Are you keen to give your full support to a topic such as education, commissioning a composition or equipping the orchestra with the very best instruments? Of course, you could also choose to ‘adopt’ a specific project.
Here are some concrete examples:
Mission Symphonic is an educational project in which children discover ten well-known symphonys. The pieces are introduced in workshops, in which the children also interact with dance, visual arts, Spoken word and singing. Click here for more information (in Dutch).
