Friends make the difference

More than 3,000 Friends stand behind the success of the spirited and adventurous Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra (RPhO). Since 1935, the Friends Society has consistently contributed to the orchestra’s top-quality sound by purchasing and maintaining top-class instruments and supporting the orchestra’s innovative projects.

Friends get more

The Friends Society strengthens the special relationship between its members and the orchestra, giving Friends extra access to orchestra: introductory pre-concert lectures, an annual music appreciation course, group trips to cities where the orchestra plays, and special behind-the-scenes encounters with musicians and conductors.

Make the RPhO your orchestra!

The RPhO’s enthusiastic fans understand that the orchestra deserves not just to survive, but to thrive! Governmental funding is limited, making the support of the Friends Society not only important but truly essential. With your gift to the Friends, you also give yourself something valuable: a personal connection to the RPhO and a heightened appreciation of ‘your’ orchestra’s concerts in the Doelen.

Give, and get more!

All gifts, large and small, help support the RPhO’s world-class standards. With a gift of as little as € 50 (solo) or € 85 (duo) per year, you receive access to ticket discounts and the various Friends Society activities. Extra generous gifts are rewarded with extra benefits, including access to advance ticket purchasing.
