Why Support the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra

Try to conceive for a moment a world empty of the passion and joy that only the greatest music can bring us. Existence without the sweet harmony of music would indeed be unbearable !

The San Bernardino Symphony will transport and uplift you with spellbinding orchestral performances right at your doorstep in downtown San Bernardino .

The Orchestra also gives the children of the San Bernardino community the opportunity to be initiated to the joys of music through concerts of the highest caliber and inspiring community musical outreach programs.

Your generous support will help perpetuate:

► The priceless musical legacy of fantastic orchestral concerts performed by one of the first fully professional orchestras in the Inland Empire.

► A tradition of first - class musical soloists and performers featured at our concerts.

► A sophisticated, ever - expanding audience that reaches throughout the Inland Empire and beyond.

► Music In The Schools, the San Bernardino Symphony's acclaimed music education program and other important San Bernardino Symphony Guild community education and fundraising programs.

► San Bernardino Symphony Community Engagement Programs (Redlands Bowl Summer Programs and other events).

Your leadership gift will enable us to continue what we are doing, and so much more! Cash, charitable remainder trusts, appreciated stock, and life insurance policies are just a few examples of the gifts that secure the future of the San Bernardino Symphony.

Please call the SBSO office at 909.381.5388 for any additional support information.

Individual Sponsorship   Our Valued Patrons

 

Individual Sponsorship

Many people are unaware that ticket sales provide only about 25% of the San Bernardino Symphony's annual operating budget.  We rely on the generous support of our donors to maintain a vital presence in the local arts community.

Indeed, donors to the Symphony also play a crucial role in sustaining our tradition of artistic excellence in musical performance. And, they help perpetuate the Symphony's full suite of life-changing music education programs in the local elementary, middle, and high schools.

Consider the ways in which you would most like your contribution to be used.

Individual donors may elect to sponsor a portion of a performance: the Maestro, a featured soloist, the musical scores, or a section of the orchestra.

Or, they may choose to sponsor seats at an up-coming performance for local students, military personnel, or senior citizens.

Or they may share the gift of music with the community through one of our ensemble trios <<include link>>.

They may share their love of beautiful music in perpetuity through our Planned Giving Program.

Join our esteemed list of Symphony donors today.

Please call the SBSO office at 909.381.5388 for additional support information.
