About our Supporters

The Orchestra of St John’s is enormously grateful for the generous financial support of its Patrons and Supporters. Without their assistance it would not be able to continue performing music at the highest possible standard or to carry out its community work with autistic children and their families and people with dementia.

If you appreciate OSJ’s work and would like to find out more about becoming a sponsor of the orchestra, please contact Peter Cousins peter.cousins@osj.org.uk
