Absolute Classics connects individuals with the world’s finest music. We invite you to become a donor and join a special network of people who are part of the Absolute Classics family. Being a family member means you are directly helping us to make wonderful musical opportunities happen.

After all, where would we be without music in our lives?

In spring 2015, we launched the Absolute Classics Patron Scheme and invited members of our audience to help us bring more world-class musicians to perform in Dumfries & Galloway. We have been overwhelmed with the response and are hugely grateful to everyone who is helping to secure the financial future of our musical charity.
