If you have ever wanted to make it possible for a renowned guest artist to perform with The Symphony, this program is for you!

You may choose to underwrite a guest artist or guest conductor who is already scheduled to perform with us in the current or next season, or you can “dream big” and suggest underwriting someone you would love to see in a future season, limited only by your own budget, and subject to discussion with The Symphony.

Imagine seeing the conductor and guest artists as our musicians do, and feeling the excitement and energy of the orchestra as they play. As the underwriter of a guest soloist or conductor, at $5,000 for an already-scheduled artist, you will experience the music “up close and personal” from a special seat on The Lensic stage during the dress rehearsal for your artist’s performance.

You will receive four complimentary concert tickets, and be recognized from the stage during the concert. Immediately afterwards, receive a special introduction to and be photographed with your artist, then join other Symphony family and friends at the after-concert Symphony Club Room at Galerie Züger. Enjoy the company of those who shared your experience at the concert and chat informally with our exceptional musicians, guest artists and conductors, while sipping wine and sampling hors d’oeuvres. In addition, your name will appear in all advertising materials and the Program Book Insert as having underwritten the guest artist’s performance.

Reach for the Stars is a separate giving opportunity from Club and Circle memberships or programs such as Music Education or Adopt-A-Musician, and does not result in membership benefits.
