“Wow, this isn’t your grandmother’s orchestra! The programming is fresh and fantastic. There is a fire on the stage in the dead of winter – such passionate musicmaking!” These are the words of an excited concertgoer who had just experienced his first concert after an absence of several years.

YOUR support makes thrilling performances possible - of new music as well as masterpieces which have stood the tests of time.

YOUR support helps us present affordable Masterworks concerts to thousands of people throughout the region, to provide three daytime performances of Young People's Concerts for nearly 3,000 elementary students from throughout the region, and support incredible guest soloists.

The ANNUAL FUND is the single largest source of operating revenue, and the most critically important to the organization. The Annual Fund is the opportunity for donors to focus their financial commitment where it is needed the most, year in and year out.

Because we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your gift is tax-deductible. A receipt for tax purposes will be sent to you for your gift at the address you supply. 



From showing hundreds of squirmy elementary students to their seats to ushering at beautiful Bluestem Amphitheater, there are literally hundreds of ways YOU can volunteer and have fun doing it. Volunteer commitments can be as short as a couple hours on a Saturday morning helping with annual auditions, or as in-depth as serving on the Board of Trustees. Whatever you enjoy doing, we certainly have a place for you. (AND...if what you enjoy doing is going around town hanging posters, there are FREE CONCERT TICKETS in the deal for you!)

For more information on donating, volunteering or sponsorship opportunities, please call or write Development Director Sara Granger.
