Supporting the NZSO

We are your Orchestra. Help us play for you!

Your support is vital.  Your gift enables us to bring world-class symphonic music to all New Zealanders and continue as this country’s only full-size, full-time national orchestra – a source of pride for every Kiwi.

“A country without important art has no soul, and a great country needs a great orchestra.”
NZSO Music Director Designate Edo de Waart

When you choose to donate to the NZSO, your gift connects you to those who benefit directly from the orchestra’s varied programmes: school students, community groups, up and coming young musicians and, of course, audience members like you. Your gift helps to enrich the lives of others.

The cost of operating a world-class orchestra continues to rise, meaning that the NZSO needs the generosity of its supporters now more than ever.

Please support your Orchestra today!
