Friends of the NJO
The foundation Friends of the NJO (officially registered as Stichting Vrienden van het Nationaal Jeugdorkest) was founded in 1978 by a number of former orchestra members and has since become an indispensable factor in financing the activities of NJO. The Friends help to create the financial space to be able to do special things: a famous conductor, an extra concert, purchase of good instruments, CD productions and more.
Friends enjoy various benefits, such as a discount on tickets or the possibility to be the first to book concerts. You will be regularly informed about this by email. You are already a Friend for € 25 per year. The higher the gift, the greater the benefits. Scroll down for further details.
You become a Friend by going to the shopping cart on the website of our umbrella organization NJON via the button below. Choose 'ik wil een account aanmaken' (I want to create an account), then select your desired Friends package and pay.
