The PSO will need to raise at least $250,000 in Resiliency Fund gifts, in addition to Annual Fund gifts, to ensure stability when uncertainties arise around COVID-19. Your support enables the PSO to continue enriching the lives of our community members through music.
Despite these challenges, the PSO has ambitious plans for the 2022-23 season.
Your Resiliency Fund gifts support four critical areas:
PSO musicians who have been impacted by COVID-19.
An innovative virtual season, including Magic of Christmas, produced by GRAMMY-winning PARMA and distributed on PSO TV.
Accessible and safe education programs that engage our youngest listeners with the joys of music.
Planning efforts for artistically rich programs for our future seasons, including our 100th season (2024-25).
Your support is allowing us to be flexible to these changing times so that we can continue to nurture great music and support our musicians.
The Resiliency Fund ensures that the PSO will remain strong, more relevant, and have a deeper connection to its community. This fund invests in the musicians and staff who make world-class programs possible onstage and virtually, and it advances meaningful music programs that enrich the lives of 100,000 children and adults each season.
We have realigned our programs to meet the needs of our community and musicians. Through digital engagement, we have provided music to patrons, income to musicians, and engaging programs for students.
