Concert & Series Sponsorships
Sponsorships are available for individual concerts and in some cases, for an entire series of concerts. Sponsorships offer businesses a variety of unique marketing and entertaining benefits. In general, partial concert sponsorships for the HSO’s concerts begin at $5,000 and for the summer Talcott Mountain Music FestivalSM begin at $2,500.
In addition, concert sponsorships can be combined with ticket donations to some of the HSO’s educational programs serving the Hartford public schools, thereby accomplishing two goals-corporate visibility and community support.
Support of Education
The HSO is very grateful for the business support we receive for our extensive educational programs, particularly Symphony in the Schools. Many businesses contributed to these valuable programs through their foundations. See the Education & Community Page for more details on our programs.
Support of Community Programs
Special Event Sponsorship
There are several opportunities each season for businesses to support the HSO’s special events, including our annual Gala and the Opening Night of the season in October.
Business sponsorships of these events are available at many levels; the benefits include tables at the annual Gala and high-visibility at all events, pre- and post-show event recognition, as well as the intangible benefit of attendance at outstanding parties.
Business Trade Partners
The Hartford Symphony’s Business Trade Program offers businesses a unique opportunity to receive sponsor benefits and valuable exposure through playbill advertising, web site listings, social media recognition, and concert tickets in exchange for a non-cash trade.
