MEDICI PROGRAM

Peter Weiss AO siting alongside ACO Principal Cello Timo-Veikko Valve, who is holding the historic cello donated by Mr Weiss.

In the time honoured tradition of the Medici family, the ACO's Medici Patrons support the individual players' Chairs and assist the Orchestra to attract and retain musicians of the highest calibre.

Become a Medici Patron by supporting the Chair of one of the ACO’s virtuosic musicians.  You will form a close and lasting relationship with your musician and your contribution will directly support his or her salary. You will have a substantial and long lasting impact on the musician’s career while becoming a highly valued member of the ACO family.

Your contribution will be acknowledged by:

  • Line acknowledgment beneath the photograph of your individual player, in all national tour programs produced in each year;

  • Line acknowledgment in the Medici Program section of all national tour programs; 

  • Line acknowledgment in the Medici Program section of our website; 

and

  • For Corporate Patrons, companies will be acknowledged with a half page advertisement in one national tour program in each year.
     

CONTRIBUTION

$30,000 - $40,000p.a. (depending on the Chair) for a three year period.
