Ticket revenue accounts for only 25% of the money necessary to bring great classical music to you! The Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, now in its 16th season, is one of Sacramento’s most prestigious arts organizations. Since Fall 1998 the Philharmonic has produced 96 concerts, including 8 world or national premieres. Outstanding concerts included the Songs of Hope series, which featured musicians from Israel, Egypt and Palestine playing with the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra. Each season includes music that is a celebration of the cultural diversity in the Sacramento region. Your gift is an investment in inspiration and wondrous possibility, supporting the continuation of this legacy, as well as:
BEAUTIFUL MUSIC PERFORMANCES
- Step into the concert hall and watch as the noise – buzzing phones, chirping computers, incessant calendars – is silenced. In its place comes the music, transporting you from where you live, what language you speak, what religion you live by. For those two hours, you become a part of something larger, broader, a part of a musical evolution that continues to this day.
- For those two hours, we give you permission to fall under the spell.
- Turn down the noise and turn up the music.
EXPOSURE TO CREATIVE ARTS
- The Sacramento Philharmonic is dedicated to building community through music. With so many populations lacking the means or a way to bring themselves to the music, we have made it our mission to bring what we do into the world beyond the concert hall.
