MUSICIAN CHAIR SPONSORSHIP
Sponsorships range from $1,500 to $20,000
Patrons can also demonstrate support for the music we create through sponsoring a particular musician’s chair in the orchestra. Chair sponsors are invited to attend an annual benefit/thank you reception as well as attend designated dress rehearsals during the concert season and have their names listed under the names of the musicians they sponsor in the Philharmonic program book. Many of the Philharmonic’s chair sponsors form meaningful, lifelong friendships with our musicians; a benefit that has proven priceless for all involved.
For more information about how you can be a Chair Sponsor, contact us today!
HOST A MUSICIAN
Gifts come in many different forms. For every concert we produce, quality musicians are a must. In order for the Philharmonic to continue to recruit talented musicians from around the state, housing must be provided. The Philharmonic designates financial resources every year in order to provide a place for our musicians to stay while they are here. This expense can be lessened with your generous donation to host a musician or musicians. If you have a spare room, guest house or other accommodations that you would be willing to share for a few evenings around concert time, please contact the Philharmonic.
Corporate support from local and national companies is essential to the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic’s ability to maintain its position as a cultural leader in South Central Indiana. More than 40 businesses in our community understand the economic benefits of partnering with the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic — both for themselves and for our entire region.
WHY A PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF OUR COMMUNITY
Symphonic performances keep discretionary spending in Columbus. Concertgoers eat in area restaurants, visit area shops, stay in area hotels, and pay taxes on these services. Our children’s classroom learning is enriched through the Philharmonic’s music education programs that take place in 10 area public schools. The Philharmonic’s presence enhances the entire region’s quality of life, helping chambers and businesses recruit other businesses and employees.
