Now in its third year, Forte combines an artistically-rich live fundraising event and a week-long online auction to help us thrill our supporters while raising crucial funds to support both our main stage concerts and education programs. Hosted by Music Director Eckart Preu, this year Forte will feature five of the PSO’s world-class musicians performing in an intimate setting at Halo at Thompson’s Point. Join us on Thursday, May 18th, 2023 for an unforgettable night of music and merriment to support your PSO.

All Proceeds Benefit PSO Musicians, Performances, and Education Programs.

All proceeds benefit the many ways our music reaches you and our community members each season. Thank you for supporting our musicians, our world-class live concerts, our accessible virtual performances, and our innovative music programs for kids.
