Patrons and Sponsors

Appeal for Patrons

Would you be interested in becoming a Patron (individual) or Sponsor (corporate) of the Solway Sinfonia?  Solway Sinfonia is an amateur orchestra for musicians from Dumfries & Galloway and neighbouring regions.  We strive for a high standard of musicianship and aim to nurture young musical talent.

We are very grateful for any support we receive.  Support from generous members of the public enables the orchestra to keep functioning.  Without it we simply could not do so.


For an annual donation of £50 (or more if you wish) you would receive :

  • with your permission, public recognition of your patronage / sponsorship in our programmes and on this website;
  • priority booking of tickets for our concerts;
  • an invitation to occasional social events.

If you wish to print off an application form, please click here and then print directly from your web-browser - it is designed to print off on one sheet of A4 paper.

If you are, or are interested in becoming, a tax paying patron, we may be able to claim Gift Aid on any donation that you make.  You must pay income tax as an individual which is enough to cover all gift aided charitable donations which you make.  If you are a higher rate tax payer you may be able to claim tax relief on gift aid donations you make.  You can download a Gift Aid form here if you wish.
