You raised $331,599 for symphonic music!

On May 10, 2017 you and your fellow music-lovers came together to donate an incredible $331,599 to the Symphony.

During GiveBIG, you met four individual matching challenges, from Lenore Hanauer, Jerry Meyer and Nina Zingale, Donald and Ann Connolly, and a former Symphony Board member, contributing $131,000 toward the day's total. The matching challenges set ambitious goals, but you gave generously and met each one. And you kept on giving.

Your tremendous outpouring of support demonstrated the power music has to bring people together to make the world a better place — the power you have to create the joyful, vibrant and inclusive community you wish to live in.

THANK YOU to everyone who made a donation during GiveBIG. You allow the Symphony to bring inspiring, powerful, life-affirming, vital music to the community.
