Music Chair Program

Music Chair Program

#Show your love for the Orchestra through the Music Chair program.

This program helps Queensland Symphony Orchestra with the enormous cost of maintaining a full time orchestra, attracting musicians of the highest calibre and providing Queenslanders with the opportunity to experience world class music, at home.

"The chair supporters program is a great success, fostering the feeling among our players that we are appreciated and personally valued. Many enduring friendships have arisen, and the scheme makes significant inroads into the otherwise rather impersonal ideas of "our orchestra" and "our audience". For myself I have found it delightful to get to know my donors and feel supported by their interest."
Warwick Adeney, Concertmaster

“It helps establish a special rapport and relationship with our audiences, it makes it personal, we hear their views and learn about their life rather than it being all about us on stage. I enjoy looking over at the end of a performance to my supporters, Graham and Kate, to gauge their reaction and hopefully to receive a thumbs up! The program is really important to us as musicians.”
Kathryn Close, Cello

Music Chair supporters receive personal updates from the musicians, invitations to a range of events, open rehearsals and digital events throughout the year. Supporters are acknowledged in concert programs, the website and the Orchestra’s Annual Report.

It has never been more important to support our musicians.
