and support your Edinburgh Quartet from as little as £30/year

Friends of the Edinburgh Quartet is our membership programme, connecting the players to our most loyal supporters.

The Friends play a vital role in securing the future of the Edinburgh Quartet, and the donations received each year help support our education and outreach programmes, such as recent tours to some of the remotest parts of Scotland to deliver primary school workshops, audience development projects and popup performances designed to safeguard the future of classical music audiences in Scotland.

With the support of our Friends, alongside funders such as Creative Scotland, we are able to work towards our key ambition of being the string quartet for all Scotland.

With annual memberships from £30/year to £200/year, offering a range of rewards including 10% off concert tickets and annual coffee morning concerts, any donation really can make a difference to the future of classical music in Scotland.

Find out more about the Friends programme, and join by direct debit today.  You can also speak to us in person, at any of the concerts advertised in this brochure, to join or make a one-off donation.
