Join Trianon as a Friend


Trianon Music Group was formed over 50 years ago and is the only music group in the region with a full Symphony Orchestra and a Choir. This combination gives us the flexibility to perform large-scale works and also to reach out into communities to perform at smaller, more intimate venues and to reach new audiences.

We love keeping in touch with musicians and singers who have performed with us and we also welcome as Friends people who love music and don’t sing or play an instrument themselves or are no longer able to do so. So if you’d like the opportunity to meet and share your love of music with others or you’d simply like to find out what it’s like to be part of a large musical organization, why not come and join us? Do get in touch if you’re new to the area – belonging to Friends of Trianon is a great way to get involved in a large community and build new friendships!

How can Friends help Trianon?

Staging concerts, which are entertaining for our audiences and interesting for our members, is an ongoing challenge, which we love! It’s also a major financial commitment for Trianon, so we welcome any financial support, which Friends of Trianon feel able to offer, as this invaluable support enables us to continue providing high quality and innovative live music in East Anglia. Perhaps you have connections with the business world and can introduce us to potential sponsors?

Performances such as ours, which aim to fill the Corn Exchange for a night, need lots of work done behind the scenes so that it all goes smoothly. We are grateful to our Friends of Trianon who give practical help at our events and fulfill back and front of house tasks, which performers aren’t able to do. This can include selling programmes, meeting and directing visitors to our special, pre-show receptions or helping with our publicity stand. Sometimes help with teas and coffees at a community concert is invaluable and if you feel brave we could even do with a page-turner now and again!

How much does membership cost?

Annual subscriptions are some of the most accessible in the region and we keep our Friends of Trianon rates the same as those for performing Trianon members. This ensures that Friends are full members of Trianon Music Group.
