Support the IBO

Support the IBO

Your support is vital and much appreciated. The Irish Baroque Orchestra relies on supports from many different organisations and individuals to sustain our work. The IBO’s core funding comes from the Arts Council in the form of an annual grant. Other funding is provided via Dublin City Council, and through support-in-kind initiatives, and we also actively pursue partnerships with commercial sponsors and philanthropic donors. Your support makes a signficant contribution to ensuring the future of the IBO, ensuring the future of Baroque music in Ireland, for audiences (young and old) as well as the talented early music instrumentalists in our orchestra. IBO performances are vital, inspirational and memorable events and we are proud of the impact made through our concerts and educational activities.

Your support helps to make all this possible. In return, we offer a number of complimentary tickets (valued according to membership level), a complimentary programme for each event, a programme listing, invitations to IBO receptions to meet conductors, soloists and players, regular newsletters and a 10% discount on sales of IBO CDs.

The financial support of our Friends is fundamental for the orchestra to expand its horizons and promote music making of the highest standard. There are two options for Friend Membership: 150 euro (single subscription) or 200 euro (a couple’s subscription).
