Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration


Orchestra Fund


Music is an experience that we all share. From those who create it, to those who hear it, music joins us together. From the stages at Music Hall to schools, parks and neighborhood centers, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops are out and about in your community, bringing you the world-class music you have come to expect. But, no matter where the music happens, the common thread is you.

Be a part of the Orchestra’s work to create thrilling moments of musical connection with dynamic performances and outreach that strengthens our community. Invest in the continued success of the Orchestra with your gift today! It's easy--simply click here, or contact the Philanthropy Team at 513.744.3271.



By making a gift to your Orchestra, you will receive an array of benefits from invitations to open rehearsals, advance ticket sales and many more.

Did you know that your gift has the potential to be doubled or even tripled? 

If you give between now and the end of August, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the generous support of The H.B., E.W. and the F.R. Luther Charitable Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, and Narley L. Haley, Co-Trustees.

In addition, many companies and service groups will match employee and member donations!
