NLSO Corporate Sponsorship Information

We are looking to expand our very successful Corporate Partnerships, and are eager to explore appropriate possibilities with the NLSO, providing a mutually beneficial association.

The Ńorthern Lights Symphony Ørchestra (NLSO) is unique in that it specialises in repertoire drawn from composers born within the area of the Northern Lights, including Scandinavia, Canada, Iceland, Scotland, Estonia and northern Russia.

The orchestral charitable objects are: to advance arts, culture and education by the provision and performance of public concerts, the provision of educational outreach programmes and by encouraging an appreciation of and an interest in music generally and, in particular … orchestral music composed by persons born within the countries and regions from which the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, can be seen.

Our enviable list of Friends of the Orchestra include: Ms Joanna Lumley OBE, Ms Tracey Emin, Ms Dawn French, Mr Jonathan Pryce CBE, Lady Fraser, Lady Jean Arbuthnot, Lord Cholmondeley, The Lord Mayor of Westminster, The Finnish Ambassador, not to mention our friends at Time Out Magazine, Dazed and Confused Magazine, and This is London Magazine.
