For any performing organisation, presenting concerts is a challenge, not least because of the expense. The committee of the orchestra work hard in a voluntary capacity to keep expenditure to a minimum, however costs can be quite startling.

The orchestra continuously strives to balance the twin aims of improving the already high standard of performance and the increasing popularity of the concerts, whilst at the same time advancing financial stability. A major influence on the financial status of the orchestra is the increasingly necessary support from commercial sponsors.
