The final movement of a stirring symphony evokes powerful emotions. Perhaps you've experienced that magical moment when strings, winds and percussion unite to create one last thundering crescendo. The momentary silence that follows quickly gives way to a grateful audience expressing the joy of the occasion with applause.
Your investment in the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera is worthy of an ovation. Your generous support enables us to share the gift of music with current audiences by keeping ticket prices affordable and building young audiences through educational opportunities.
Your investment in the CSO is an investment in our community. The presence of a symphony orchestra enhances the quality of life and helps attract new business into the area.
Thanks to Friends of the CSO, the CSO is in the schools, teaching kids about live music, showing kids how instruments work, talking to them about music and instruments and what its like to play an instrument.
You are helping to expose thousands of children to great classical music; a small but meaningful antidote to the “pop culture” showered upon them day in and day out.
The CSO Youth Orchestras provide talented young musicians of the greater Chattanooga area with the opportunity to perform in a full orchestra as well as develop skills they can use for the rest of their lives.
Your gift to the CSO will help us touch the lives of more than 60,000 people annually with our concerts and educational programs.
Some of the specific CSO programs your contribution supports include:
Thank you for considering a gift to the CSO. We honor your faith in us by continuing to move forward, with the full realization that we would not be able to do so without your help.
