The MCO Foundation was founded in 2008 to support the Mahler Chamber Orchestra’s musicians, dynamic musical projects and diverse educational initiatives across Europe. Its mission is to bring the orchestra’s unique vision of classical music to the world.

The Foundation houses our Friend, Explorer and Patron Circles and is infused by the generous donations of supporters across the globe. It gives us the support we need to play far and wide, and to continue to boost the careers of talented young musicians.
