Adopt a Chair

Adopt a Chair in the Chetham’s Symphony or Chamber Orchestra and help to bring the music of Chetham’s alive!

When you Adopt a Chair, you can choose your favourite instrument to support within the orchestra, and will support it for a whole year, being assigned a chair at the next three end-of-term performances. You can Adopt a Chair at the following levels:

All money raised through Adopt a Chair will directly support our amazing orchestra performances – a truly wonderful experience for our students and audiences alike – and are an opportunity for you to make a real difference to the music stars of tomorrow.
