Donate or Sponsor our Orchestra

Charitable Status Number: 861415297RR0001

As we prepare for our 13th Season, the ongoing support of our wonderful patrons is essential.
The costs of operating a full-fledged orchestra are immense, and ticket sales typically generate one third of a typical symphony's revenue. Your donation will aid in paying our dedicated musicians and staff, and assist us in venue costs, staging, community outreach projects, and many other expenses.

Sponsoring the SSO

The Symphony offers exposure to our active, dedicated audience. We welcome the opportunity to tailor sponsor benefits to your specific interests. Benefits can focus on advertising and public relations, in-theatre recognition, product displays, entertainment options including tickets and private receptions, and special opportunities for associated groups.

Sponsorships at various levels are available for individual concerts as well as our full concert season. Events such as the Symphony's educational outreach programs, other special events, and guest artists or conductors may also be sponsored.
