Music can have a real impact, inspiring the people-and revitalizing the communities – it touches. And when it’s missing, there’s a real impact too.

Music Builds Community is the Hartford Symphony’s campaign to raise more than $10 million to help secure its financial future. We’ve hit the $10 million mark, and now have an additional $1 million Challenge. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar and help make a difference for the Hartford Symphony and Greater Hartford.  Which will allow us to bring the undisputed power-of music to people-and a region–that would otherwise be without.
