Why should a community support an orchestra that’s in its final season?
First, without continued support, the ability to produce a final season could be in jeopardy. Ticket sales only cover 25-30% of our operating costs. The rest is entirely dependent on individual and corporate support. Demonstrating that an arts organization can manage its own conclusion gracefully helps position all the arts for more positive community support.
Second, if the support received is strong enough to offset our financial obligations, the surplus will be dedicated to the future of our highly-regarded Youth Orchestra Program – which will continue operating independently of GBSO after the coming season.
If you love great live music, your support is needed now more than ever before.
