> About the Ulster Orchestra
> Mission statements embody the values and the vision of an
> organisation. Enriching life through music is a clear articulation 
> the goals and the dreams of the Ulster Orchestra, shaping the
> Orchestra's strategies and determining its day-to-day behaviour. The
> passion and commitment of this Orchestra is second-to-none.
> The Ulster Orchestra, based in Belfast, is a cornerstone of cultural
> life in Northern Ireland. It employs 63 full-time musicians and next
> year it will be celebrating forty years of musical achievement. As
> Northern Ireland's only professional symphony orchestra, its tours
> throughout Europe, to Asia and the USA have enhanced the reputation 
> this region. The Ulster Orchestra gives about two dozen concerts in
> its Belfast season, mainly on Friday evenings, but a new Saturday
> strand is being developed with an eye to creating special events
> across the season to attract an ever-wider audience.
> Most of those concerts take place in either the Waterfront or Ulster
> Halls. The Orchestra also gives concerts in many other centres 
> Northern Ireland, including Armagh, Coleraine, Derry/Londonderry and
> Enniskillen.
> Education and outreach activities which help to break down barriers
> and share the excitement of live music-making form a vital part of 
> Orchestra's work. Such activity is driven by a strong commitment to
> developing home-grown talent and building the audiences of the 
> regardless of any seemingly disadvantaging barriers, whether social,
> racial or financial.
> Accessibility has been a key factor in the development of the
> Orchestra's web-site with its on-line booking facility and its news,
> reviews and archival content.
> The Ulster Orchestra has made over 60 CD recordings, several of 
> have won awards. Its special relationship with the BBC, the
> Orchestra's exclusive broadcast partner, results in many recordings
> (and many extra public Invitation Concerts), commissions and
> performance relays for BBC Radio 3, Radio Ulster and BBC TV.
> The Ulster Orchestra seeks the help of individuals and businesses to
> maintain its work. It is important that the Orchestra can 
> that its community support is widespread and that the Orchestra's
> financial base has a broad foundation, rooted in that community.
> The Orchestra values the continued support of its principal funders 
> the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (including the National 
> the BBC and Belfast City Council. Their monies, along with the 
> generated from ticket sales, contribute hugely to the running of the
> Orchestra. However, to achieve a secure future and maintain the
> highest musical quality, there is always a substantial amount to be
> found from other sources. That extra money helps to address the
> shortfall, paying for education and outreach projects, securing
> internationally-renowned soloists and conductors, and funding
> inspirational programmes which usually require enlarged orchestral
