Patrons’ Association

Sublime achievements are often possible only thanks to the conviction and commitment of the public and corporations. The Patrons’ Association has supported the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich’s artistic work and development since 1983. It champions the orchestra’s ambitious musical objectives as well as enabling it to realise exciting artistic projects.

As a member of the Patrons’ Association, you can attend dress rehearsals, will be invited to special concerts and can establish interesting new contacts with like-minded people.
Come and join our great orchestral family. We look forward to welcoming you!
