2013-2014 – A Season to Celebrate!
On April 15th 2014 our founder Sir Neville Marriner celebrated his 90th birthday. We are taking this wonderful opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate his unique achievement in creating the Academy as well as looking forward to our musical future with our Music Director Joshua Bell.
Our performances with Sir Neville continue to inspire audiences around the world, while our relationship with Joshua Bell has brought a fresh new interest to the Academy and our work. We aim to build on this, and for a new generation of audiences to enjoy these great musical experiences.
Unlike many other orchestras, we do not receive any subsidy from the government. We can only continue our work by securing financial support from our Friends, Patrons and sponsors. In return, your financial contribution to our events this season and in the future, ensures a real relationship with us, not just a cheque in the post.
By making a donation or supporting the Academy by becoming a Patron or Friend, you will make a real difference, and help us continue to perform and to thrive for years to come.
