We are looking forward to welcoming you to the BFO’s extended family!

The Budapest Festival Orchestra is a Hungarian success story, recognized around the globe as one of the world’s finest orchestras. Much of its funding comes through the orchestra’s own foundation. This means that the BFO depends upon the support of corporate and private sponsors to maintain its standing in the top echelons of international music ensembles. Your donation also funds innovative community-building and educational programs to allow new audiences and new generations to hear music making at its very best.

Let us introduce the ambassadors of BFO Patrons, our loyal friends, who have not only been supporting the Budapest Festival Orchestra for several years, but are also committed to help us with their expertise and advic





The Conductor's Circle

All members of the BFO Patrons program have the opportunity to purchase season tickets more than a week before they go on sale to the general public.

Supporters are invited to join us for several exclusive dress rehearsals and a Christmas champagne toast each year. Our Gold Supporters are invited to join the BFO on tour.

Benefactors have the opportunity to participate in receptions held in the intermissions of our concerts, in our tours and in our dinners for supporters.

Gold-level members of the Conductor’s Circle may join Iván Fischer for a toast after one of our concerts.

BFO Patrons become an integral part of the life of the BFO through meetings, tours, dinners, intimate coffee conversations and dress rehearsals: month to month, they become better acquainted with one another, the musicians of the BFO and our staff. Friendships to last a lifetime have been born at our BFO Patrons dress rehearsals, in concert intermissions and club events. Join this extraordinary community!

Without the dedication of our music-loving friends, the BFO wouldn’t be what it is today – a globally acclaimed orchestra, which is equally at home in the world’s most prestigious concert halls and Hungary’s tiniest villages. Without their support, we also would not be able to organize our educational and community programs. Join BFO Patrons today by selecting one of the membership levels.
