We would be delighted to welcome you as a member of our wide international network of music enthusiasts and patrons of the arts.

Your generous annual contributions propel our music and our social and educational projects. You make it possible for us to do what we love year-round and to continue to reinvent classical music!

Please select a support circle option below and we will contact you with next steps. The circles listed below support our projects in Europe and worldwide via the MCO Foundation. If you want to specifically support the MCO's activities in the US, please click here.

We thank you so much for your support and involvement and are looking forward to a fun and mutually enriching relationship!


Since 2000, our Friend Circle has been widening to all corners of the globe. We are immensely grateful to our Friends for their support.

As a Friend your contributions go toward funding the day-to-day costs of being a touring orchestra – you help us fund things like new instruments, repairs, sheet music, and transport cases.

We consider our Friend Circle to be true friends! They attend rehearsals, meet us in person, and get the inside scoop on what we’re working on. As a Friend you are also invited to attend regular Friends Meetings, where like-minded MCO supporters meet up to interchange and enjoy musical, culinary and cultural experiences.

This is for all of you innovative, unconventional classical music lovers! Explorers stand behind our most cutting-edge projects – the ones that redefine classical music.

Your participation in our Explorer Circle keeps our liveliest projects running throughout the year – from the MCO’s “Long Nights,” with their entertaining mix of performances that last into the midnight hours, to collaborations between MCO musicians and dance companies, DJs and performance artists.

Our Explorers support us in furthering the activities and global learning projects that make us absolutely unique as an orchestra. We want to widen this group as much as possible, so please help us spread the word!

The Explorer Circle takes you (and a friend) to the heart of the MCO, with access to the musicians themselves. You are invited to attend rehearsals, private concert intros given by the musicians, and to join us for our exciting Explorer Weekends.

We love playing Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonic and Suntory Hall – and concerts in these spectacular venues boost our opportunities as a global orchestra. Our aim is to bring a new kind of orchestra to the world, but concert fees alone cannot support our fearless mission.

To fuel and propel our large, high-profile orchestra projects, we rely on the generous support, advice and professional networks of our Patrons. It is you who help us continue to develop and to take classical music in a new and exciting direction.

Your exceptional level of support makes you a part of our very organisation. We welcome you into our inner circle, offering you innumerable member benefits and special privileges.

You are invited to post-concert dinners with conductors and soloists, and encouraged to make special requests for involvement with our orchestra.

Please contact Sandra Wiener at +49 30 41717919 or for details.
