Chester Philharmonic Orchestra


We would invite you to consider sponsoring the Chester Phil or, if you desire, enter into a partnership deal with us. We have a great deal to offer you and in return you would be supporting a very worthwhile cause.

The Chester Philharmonic have an important part to play in the musical life of the North West Region of England. It provides young professional musicians, student soloists and conductors with the opportunity to develop their talents by performing with an orchestra in front of an audience as they embark upon their careers.  It also provides a facility for good amateur musicians who under an established professional conductor, by paying an annual subscription, rehearse and perform music from a wide repertoire which will appeal to playing members and audiences alike.  However, the Orchestra is heavily dependent on the goodwill of local supporters in order that it may continue to provide classical music in the area. This currently comes from a variety of sources: friends and family, the concert-going public, fund raising activities and of course the musicians themselves.

The expenses associated with the running of the Orchestra are huge. Both Management and Music Committees currently undertake a fine balancing act between satisfying members’ wish to play challenging music, putting on programmes that will appeal to the public and of course balancing the books.

The orchestra is seeking to encourage sponsorship and partnerships and we would invite you to:-
