Do you want to hire the Orchestra for a special event? Is there a piece of music that you would like to hear? Are you interested in advertising in concert programmes? Given sufficient notice Southend Philharmonic Orchestra would be pleased to consider your requests.
Copyright laws mean that hiring music for most popular modern music is prohibitively expensive. Similarly, hiring suitable venues within a reasonable budget is restricted to venues that are less than perfect.
There are two ways in which the Orchestra can be regularly supported; by becoming an ‘Associate Member’ or ‘Friend’ of the Southend Philharmonic Orchestra…
Associate Membership subscription includes admission to each of our three concerts in a year. The tickets and additional information are posted out in advance of the concerts. Subscription to become an Associate Member is £15 (larger contributions are always welcome)
Friends of the Orchestra receive mailed invitations for each concert and a complimentary programme on the night. ‘Friends’ can volunteer to help out on the night of the concert in return for free admission.
To become an Associate Member or a Friend of the orchestra write to SPO, 34, Burlington Gardens, Hadleigh, Essex. SS7 2JL or contact Sam Lawrence.
