As well as playing members, we are fortunate in having a group of loyal supporters or ‘Friends’.  No qualifications are necessary, apart from a love of music, and all that is needed to become a ‘Friend’ is to pay a small annual subscription, currently a modest £30 per year ( or more if you wish!) In return the Orchestra will provide TWO complimentary tickets for each of the four  annual concerts. In addition we will keep you up to date with our concert plans and news of the Orchestra and its members.  ‘Friends’ are also invited to the Orchestra’s social events which include a summer garden party and a Christmas social evening.   To find out more please contact Graham Grafton on 01255 870509 or email graftons@linderhof.co.uk

One comment on “‘FRIENDS’ of CCO

  1. Yes I too am very saddened by the loss of two of our great supporters and friends-Peter Cobb and,more recently, John Baker.
    Their contribution was really immeasurable and I`m sure that the orchestra will continue, but with the knowledge that much of their output was as a result of their dedication and committment.
    RIP both of them
