Friends of the Society

For the 2019/20 season we are hoping to break the 100 barrier in the number of our Friends who add so much to the social life and financial sustainability of the Society.

If you’re interested in helping to bring really good quality classical orchestral musicians to Lakeland why not join our Friends of the Society scheme?

To become a Friend you make a donation of at least £65 (single) or £90 (joint names); many of our Friends donate more. In return we will involve you in the social side of the Society, will invite you to a reception at which you can meet the Lakeland Sinfonia orchestra players, the conductor and soloist of that evening’s concert, and of course other Friends, Patrons and Corporate Sponsors. The Society’s Trustees will also listen to your views on any aspect of what we do and how we do it.

The application form to become a Friend, or renew your existing Friendship, is included in the annual member’s subscription order form. Click DOWNLOAD below to get the form and instructions. Alternatively you can email us at and join at any time.

We are grateful for the generous support of the
