At Orchestra Wellington, we want to be the most accessible orchestra in the country, bringing together people from all walks of life to enjoy the thrill of live music. We can’t do this without your help. Your contribution makes music more accessible, more enjoyable and more affordable for everyone who lives in this wonderful region of ours.
We are Wellington’s orchestra, playing for YOU. Please help us by making a donation today.
