Friends of the KPO are an exclusive "inner circle" who support the Orchestra and introduce the KPO to the wider community. In return, they receive a range of privileges - including being able to attend free Sunday afternoon chamber concerts. Read More

The KPO is a truly community-based orchestra.

A modest grant from Ku-ring-gai Council contributes less than 10% of the Orchestra’s annual income; no on-going financial support is received from the State or Federal governments. So each year more than 90% of the Orchestra’s funding must be sourced from ticket sales, from the support of many individuals and from community-minded companies.
