Become a Friend of 
Ensemble XXI!

The Friends of Ensemble XXI are music lovers from all over the world. Some of the Friends heard us for first time while they were living in Moscow, but still support us after they have left. There are also Friends who have heard us in concerts abroad or who have our recordings or visited our site.

The Friends were founded soon after Ensemble XXI began. During Ensemble XXI's  first tour to Ireland, Lygia O'Riordan received a letter from Mr William Walsh, suggesting that  we should found the Friends of Ensemble XXI. Moreover, he included a generous cheque in the envelope. 
The Friends are now spread over four continents and include people from all walks of life. 

The role of the Friends of Ensemble XXI is a very important one in allowing the orchestra to maintain its artistic freedom. The orchestra does not receive any state or city funding either in Russia or abroad and as such is completely independent. The Friends allow Ensemble XXI to receive support from sponsorship sources, which are in line with the orchestra’s ideals and philosophy. In other words, we have the time and possibility  to carefully choose our sponsors.

Friends' membership is not a subscription but rather it is support for Ensemble XXI's work. However, we will send you a regular newsletter. There is no fixed membership fee. You can give any amount you like and please remember that no matter how small your donation, every donation is a huge help. After your initial donation, your membership of the Friends of Ensemble XXI will be effective for 1 year. 

After you have made your donation, please e-mail us at dima(at) with your contact details so that we can acknowledge your donation and include you on our mailing list as a Friend of Ensemble XXI.  

Thank you very much for your support!
