The Conductor’s Circle includes the Symphony’s top echelon of supporters. Members pledge to make an annual contribution of $1,000 per individual and $2,000 per couple to belong to this supportive circle of friends. Members who contribute over $3,500 within a single tax year will be listed under our “Conductor’s Circle – Premiere” category. Though donations are often made in accordance with the tax year, Conductor’s Circle membership spans the Symphony’s fiscal year from June 1 to May 31.
Membership comes with privileges which include:
- Invitation to “Life of a Musician” cocktail party: This exclusive party is held at the home of a Symphony patron and presided over by Maestro Peltz. After a brief private concert, given by a selected Symphony musician, guests enjoy a conversation between the Maestro and the musician about life as a musician, followed by questions from the audience. The event features fabulous light refreshments and an open bar. It is a unique opportunity for donors to get “up close and personal” with the musicians of the Symphony.
- Enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of other music-loving supporters at our Conductor’s Circle Salon parties, held two or three times a year.
- Special opportunities and events with Maestro Peltz, Symphony Musicians & Guest Artists.
- Each member is listed in our season program book.
All donations made during the Symphony season may add up to your Conductor’s Circle pledge amount. These include but are not limited to: general donations, fall and spring appeal donations, musician chair adoptions and donations to the Symphony Children’s Chorus.
