Did you know that it costs around £30,000 per year to run ERSO?  The main costs include concert and rehearsal venues, percussion hire, music, conductor’s fees etc.  The adminstration of the orchestra is managed by unpaid volunteers.

We generate income through a combination of players’ donations, ticket sales and through generous financial support from the Ernest Read Trust.  We also run an active fundraising programme, approaching Trust and Funds for grants.

How can you help ERSO to maintain our ambitious musical programme and unique place in London’s music making?
