How to Support the SSO
When you support the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, you not only ensure high quality classical music will remain in the region, you also guarantee the continuation of the community outreach and education efforts of this nonprofit, mission-driven organization.
Last year alone, we programmed seven Classical Concerts, three Pops Concerts, three Youth Orchestra Concerts, two Education Connection Concerts and numerous other education programs such as an Evening of Instrumental Women, Classical Conversations, Meet the Musicians High School Edition, Accent on Music and Musical Petting Zoos. Here’s how you can help us meet our goal of raising an additional $75,000 during our 75th Anniversary Season!
