Be a Tempo Setter
Each year, earned revenues cover only half of the Orchestra’s now $6-million operating costs. Gifts from generous individuals, corporations and foundations make up the balance. It is a delicate duet that plays on in the form of magnificent performances, brilliant guest artists and a rich variety of musical, education and community-outreach programs – with the Sarasota Music Festival as the crescendo each year.
Private contributions, no matter the size, make a difference beyond measure in the spectacular symphonic experience you have come to expect from the Sarasota Orchestra. You become an integral member of our orchestra family with your very first gift. And there are many ways to join in making the music, each offering its own experience and rewards. (There are numerous strings attached to giving.)
First you listened, now you’ve learned, we hope you’ll play along…
