Donors make the music possible!

Why Give?

Give to hear the music.  As a non-profit organization the HSO relies on the generosity of its donors. The HSO’s exciting and innovative programming brings a new dimension to the artistry of Hartford, from Masterworks to POPS! to the Talcott Mountain Music Festival. Your gift enables the HSO to perform inspirational, original and groundbreaking concerts.

Give to our community. The HSO provides music and instruction to more than 22,000 children and adults in our community through our flagship Symphony in the Schools program and myriad of educational and community programs in more than 110 schools throughout the state.  Your gift will inspire creativity in classrooms across our region.

Give to be a part of the arts in Hartford. Music is the foundation upon which every great community is built. For more than 70 years, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra has been a leader among arts organizations in Hartford, employing more than 200 musicians who live and work in our area. Your gift brings together those musicians and music lovers.

Give to honor someone. A gift to the HSO will support important community outreach programs like Musicians Care Project. This program brings the harmony of the HSO to residents in assisted living facilities who would otherwise be unable to enjoy and experience the beauty of live music. Give in honor of someone you love – your gift will make a difference in the lives of so many.

Give to help cultivate a love of music. Link up guides students grades 3-5 through a year-long music curriculum culminating in a concert performance with the HSO at The Bushnell. Your gift will bring music into the lives of children and inspire them to succeed in school and beyond.

Give to express love: The love of music, the love of one another, the love of the arts. Your gift enables the artistry of the HSO to be experienced throughout the region, bringing the highest quality music to our community.
