Partner with us

Orchestras Central is thrilled to partner with sponsors and donors who share our commitment to growing a vibrant community. We  believe in the importance of live orchestral performance and musical education, recognising the role these play in the quality of life in this region. Because we invest in the community, we invite you to invest in us!
Did you know that the the OCT family…
  • helps attract hundreds of tourists to our city – people travel for HOURS to come to our concerts!
  • reaches almost 10,000 people through its live concerts?
  • goes even further through our educational outreach programmes?
  • is the home of the only professional orchestra in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region?
  • employs approximately 75 local musicians, staff, and technical crew along with more than 200 volunteers?
  • advertises in print and electronic media throughout the region?
  • is the first and only contact most primary school students have with a live orchestra?
Corporate donors enjoy many benefits, which make their partnerships with us come alive for employees, clients, and customers. And we will ensure that each gift meets its community giving and advertising goals. Benefits may be tailored to the needs of each sponsoring organisation (or individual!)
Help us sustain our impact on our community through music – and our statement about the vital cultural life of our community.
