The orchestra will open with Schubert’s Symphony No. 6 in C Major, also known as “The Little Symphony” which was composed between October 1817 and February 1818. Presented in four movements, its first public performance was in Vienna in 1828.

Thank You!!


 Keep the Music ALIVE through a Charitable IRA Rollover 

   The tax-free IRA Charitable Rollover has been made permanent!

A tax-free gift from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Rollover directly to the San Bernardino Symphony's fund at     The Community Foundation will help sustain our ability to provide outstanding orchestral music, create opportunities for youth to experience the arts, and strengthen our community!

IRAThe Symphony will Benefit and You will, too:

  • Each dollar counts toward your required minimum IRA distribution
  • You can exclude up to $100,000 of your gift from your federal gross income resulting in lower taxable income
  • You can make a significant gift without using cash or other assets

Here's how it works...

People age 70 1/2 or older can make a gift of up to $100,000 by transferring IRA assets (not pension or other deferred compensation plan assets) to the investment fund of a non-profit organization. If married, each spouse can transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA.

IRA Charitable Rollover gifts must be made directly from the IRA custodian to the Symphony's investment fund at The Community Foundation. 

IRA Charitable Rollover gifts count toward your annual mandatory distribution from your IRA and do not result in recognizing taxable income on the distribution. As you recognize no income, they also do not generate a charitable income tax deduction.

For more information, contact Symphony Executive Director Dr. Anne Viricel at alviricel@sanbernardinosymphony.org or by phone at (909) 381-5388.
