Play Your Part and help us play ours

Each and every donation made since March 2020 has inspired and sustained the RSNO.

If you donated your Season ticket, tuned into a Digital Season concert or became a Circle member – thank you.

Over the last year, your generosity has helped us to reach over 500,000 people through digital performances, outdoor playground pop ups, interactive music-making, online singing, care home concerts and a host of other diverse community activities.

We still need your help

We are missing a vital part – our audience. While our digital reach has soared, RSNO musicians continue to perform and record to empty concert halls. When we return to live performance it will be to significantly reduced audiences.

Each year the Orchestra needs to fundraise over £1 million simply to ensure continued excellence onstage and to enable us to create inspiring projects offstage.

Our work in the community has never been more important which is why, over the next three years, our Play Your Part Appeal will revolve around not just our work on stage, but the diverse lives touched by music.


Donating to our Appeal will ensure we can continue our vital work in the community and provide a lifetime of musical inspiration.

Play Your Part


We are investing more than ever in our learning and engagement work, we need your help to reach more children and aspiring musicians.

Play Your Part

Supporting Musicians

Our musicians need your support to return to the stage and reconnect with you, our audience.

Play Your Part


Our community, like our Orchestra, is recovering. We need help to extend our reach, bringing support and inspiration to those who need it most.
