The Friends of Brecknock Sinfonia was established in 2009 to support the orchestra by raising funds, generating awareness and interest, and providing an active social network for its audiences.

Membership of the Friends offers reserved seating at concerts, regular newsletters, invitations to recitals and post-concert drinks and snacks with the performers.  All Friends are acknowledged in the concert programmes.

Throughout the year the Friends host informal recitals, often as Musical Teas on a Sunday afternoon, at which members of the orchestra perform before tea and cakes are served.  Recent offerings have included cello and harpsichord, a wind quintet, a baroque trio and a family ensemble.

The Friends also raise funds through a 100 Club, a prize draw held at every concert.  For the price of a concert ticket subscribers have a number in each drawer.   The funds raised by the Friends enable the orchestra to plan ambitious programmes and maintain the highest musical standards, while their social activities have created a strong support base and close links between the players and their audience.
