We love what we do, and we love being here for you! Symphoria is committed to opening the door to great live performances for as many Central New York community members as possible.
Our “Kids 4 Free” program has already welcomed thousands of kids under 18 to live orchestra performances – many for the very first time. Our free Summer Series, presented in parks throughout the region, reach more than 20,000 community members each year. Our innovative Healing Harmonies program provides free ensemble performances in medical facilities to bring comfort to patients and their families. And every year we expand the number of kids we reach through in-school performances and workshops.
Central New York also benefits economically from having a resident, professional orchestra living and working, teaching and playing, in our communities. We know that a vibrant cultural community makes our region more attractive to residents, visitors, and businesses. Your support is an important part of making that possible.
Ticket sales alone account for less than half of the resources needed to present inspiring orchestral music to you. Your contributions, combined with significant grant support and business sponsorships, are what make it possible.
