Support the BCO

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ORCHESTRA!

     The Bombay Chamber Orchestra Society was founded in 1962 as an educational trust and is registered as a charitable society. The orchestra performs about 3-4 concerts a year, mainly in the months of February, July, September and November. In addition to the concerts the BCO also provides free coaching to the young musical talent of the city in the techniques of orchestral playing. Our aim is not only to offer free music education, but also to create a welcoming environment to encourage young talent to continue to work at the instruments of their choice.

     Additionally, the BCO Society organizes workshops by visiting international musicians so that local students are taught the correct basic techniques of playing their instruments. We also loan instruments to students, as these are often too expensive for students or their parents to afford.

     Due to a lack of trained wind instrumentalists, the orchestra invites guest musicians from abroad who also train the younger members.

     In order to carry out all these activities, the Bombay Chamber Orchestra requires your support. Here are some of the ways you can support the BCO:

  • Donations (All donations are eligible for benefits under section 80G of Indian Income Tax Act)

  • Advertising in the concert brochure

  • Sponsoring visiting musicians / teachers for a concert

  • Donating orchestral instruments (especially Horns, Bassoons, Double Bass, etc)

  • Become a Life Member - Rs. 6,000/-

  • Become an Associate Member - Rs. 700/- a year.
