Perth Symphony Orchestra is excited to announce that Programmed have joined as a Platinum Partner.
Programmed is a leading provider of operations and maintenance services across all industry sectors including education, health, infrastructure, manufacturing, transport and mining in Australia and New Zealand. With over 25,000 staff, they are one of Australia’s largest employers.
Having long standing sponsorships within the sporting realm, we are delighted to be the first major arts organisation Programmed have chosen to partner with. Programmed incoming Managing Director, Glenn Thompson noticed an appetite for the business to invest in the arts.
“Arts and culture provides the community with the opportunity to express themselves and increase creative thinking, it allows people to come together,” said Glenn.
“Music automatically creates a sense of community and by partnering with the PSO we’re helping facilitate a culture of inclusion.”
Perth Symphony CEO and Founder, Bourby Webster says the orchestra has grown to be one of Perth’s most unique orchestral experiences.
“We want people to feel like they belong to something bigger, our music is that something. It’s relatable to all, across generations, and is one of the only things in society that can draw in crowds from different demographics and backgrounds at once,” said Bourby.
“We’re proud to be giving the community a chance to experience the magic of the symphony orchestra, and by partnering with Programmed we’re able to continue doing so.”
In addition to this, Perth Symphony welcomes Coogee – a privately owned chemical manufacturing company based in Kwinana Beach on board as an Orchestra Partner. This is a fantastic fit as Perth Symphony has performed a major summer concert in Rockingham each summer since 2017 alongside an extensive education program, visiting over 6,000 kids across 13 schools in this time.
Having performed to over 43,000 people across Perth last summer, Perth Symphony is achieving their mission of ‘music for everyone’ and by partnering with companies such as Programmed and Coogee, who understand the value of music and the arts in the community, we look forward to taking the magic of music to even more people all across Western Australia in the future.
