Brighton Phil. appeal

The Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra has launched an urgent fundraising campaign to raise £70,000 to enable it to meet payment commitments and present the 2013-14 season. Founded in 1925 by Herbert Menges, the orchestra, which relies solely on donations and ticket sales, has seen a reduction in the number of legacies received over the past few years.

‘Orchestras everywhere, indeed the arts in general, are facing interesting challenges during the economic circumstances in which we are placed, but I am hopeful that with your support, we will survive the current situation, and emerge stronger as a result,’ said BPO music director Barry Wordsworth.

If you are able to donate please contact Brighton Philharmonic on 01273 622900, or mail@brightonphil.org.uk, or send any cheques made payable to Brighton and Hove Philharmonic Society to 41, George Street, Brighton, BN2 1RJ by 17th August.
