Patrons and Alumni


The DUOS Patrons Scheme is designed to enable anyone with an interest in the society to be able to support us financially. As an entirely student-run society, DUOS relies heavily on the money raised from the Patrons Scheme to enable us to continue performing the most demanding repertoire at the highest standard throughout the year. In particular, the Patrons Scheme allows us to maintain our links with top professional orchestras such as Royal Northern Sinfonia and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, whilst also allowing us to hire players from these ensembles to provide high quality tutoring for our players during DUOS week. This is an incredibly valuable experience for the orchestra, and a fantastic opportunity that would sadly be impossible without the generous support of our Patrons. 

If you would like more information about becoming a Patron of DUOS for 2023-24, please contact our Patrons and Alumni Secretary, Ellen McCartan at for more information.


All members of DUOS are given the opportunity to receive termly newsletter when they graduate to stay up to date with the latest DUOS news. If you would like to give a donation to the orchestra, or would like to become a Patron, please contact Ellen McCartan at for more information.
