Ticket sales cover less than a quarter of the expenses for our full-size orchestral concerts.

The American Symphony Orchestra Board of Trustees, staff, and artists gratefully acknowledge the following individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies who help us to fulfill Leopold Stokowski’s avowed intention of making orchestral music accessible and affordable for everyone. While space permits us only to list gifts made at the Friends level and above, we value the generosity and vital support of all donors.
