ANNUAL FUND

Ticket sales cover only 23% of the orchestra's operating costs, but your gifts do more than fill a gap.
  • You partner with us to support exceptionally talented professional musicians whose presence in our community enriches our schools, our economic development, and our cultural landscape.
  • You provide the means to take the orchestra to locations throughout northeast Indiana enabling more families to experience the power of live classical music performances.
  • You participate in maintaining great orchestra traditions such as the Young People's Concerts, often a child's first exposure to the wonder of classical music.  Perhaps your first orchestral experience was at a YPC!

We know you have a heart for music and want to share it with the entire community.  Your gift to the Annual Fund does just that! Last season, Annual Fund donors supported:

40+ performances within our Masterworks, Family, Freimann, and Pops series

100+ promising musicians in Youth Symphony and Youth Concert Orchestra

400+ ensemble performances at schools and retirement centers in 9 counties

The Patriotic Pops at Parkview Field, a free celebration attended by almost 7,000

Over 200,000 audience members experiencing the music of The Phil
