“Samling allows me to offer my support for the highest quality music-making'
Doreen Middlemast, chair of Samling Friends

Samling Friends

Supporting outstanding young artists of all ages is extremely rewarding. Friends play a important role in enabling Samling to support musical excellence in young people through our internationally recognised Samling Artist Programme, Samling Academy and through our work in schools.

Samling Friends are at the heart of our creative community. Together, they help make the Samling experience unique and we are hugely grateful for their support.

In return, Friends receive excellence benefits, from opportunities to meet emerging and international stars, to attending private Samling recitals. All Friends memberships are considered charitable donations and are eligible for Gift Aid where applicable.

For an annual membership of just £40 (or a joint membership of £60) you will receive the following:

  • An invitation to join emerging and international stars after Samling Institute events, including a complimentary drink
  • Assisted ticket booking
  • Regular newsletter
  • Acknowledgement in all concert programmes and selected print
