The La Crosse Symphony Orchestra enjoys a broad range of support from the Seven Rivers Region community of which it is a part. Business, individuals, community and private foundations support the LSO through partnerships, sponsorships and in-kind contributions. Individuals provide generous voluntary support for classical music in the Coulee Region by:
- Purchasing individual and season tickets,
- Making philanthropic contributions,
- Participating in fund raising events sponsored by the Symphony
- Volunteering time and talents to projects
- Sponsoring concerts and educational events
This voluntary support is critical to the continued success of the LSO, since 31% of expenses are covered by ticket sales. Professional organizational management, careful attention to budgets, building the audience base and increased attention to voluntary support has put the orchestra in a stable fiscal position as we enter the 2017-18 season. Through strategic planning the Executive Director, Music Director, and the Board of Directors of the LSO consider carefully the direction in which the organization should move. The direction toward ever increasing artistic excellence is clearly proven by the musical repertoire chosen and the sold-out houses throughout the season.
There are many ways that a business, foundation or individual can partner with the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra. With each partnership there is a unique set of benefits ranging from advertising space to complimentary and discounted tickets for your company’s employees.
