The Impact of Giving
A special THANK YOU from Pacific Symphony!
As many orchestras across our nation celebrate a year of live concerts, here at Pacific Symphony, YOU are the celebration.
Whether you attended a concert, special event, volunteered, made a gift, donated tickets or a little bit of each, you made dreams come true.
From the orchestra members on stage to the tens of thousands of children and adults served in the community, you fulfilled dreams through your dedication to Pacific Symphony. Your support is an investment in education, the arts and the people of Orange County. In fact, your dedication has inspired renowned Orange County philanthropist and Pacific Symphony Board Member, Joann Leatherby, to match your next gift.
Between now and June 30, 2022, Joann will double your dream-making power, dollar for dollar, until we reach a cumulative total of $100,000. Your gift today doubles the opportunity for more dreams like the ones you’ve already made possible.
You made dreams come true for Orange County communities of all ages by supporting programs like the Pacific Symphony League, OperaFOCUS, Symphony 100, Heartstrings, arts-X-press, Family Musical Mornings, the Pacific Symphony Youth Ensembles (PSYE), Strings for Generations, ClassAct and so much more. Your support of these programs places Pacific Symphony as a national leader in education and community engagement.
Through your support of Pacific Symphony’s OperaFOCUS, you made dreams come true for these talented young singers as they performed next to world-class opera star Kelebogile Besong during the 10th Anniversary performances of Otello.
Your support expanded Santa Ana Strings to include a new mentorship and coaching program for high school students.
Your support helped us serve 206 regional non-profits with 21 partnerships, enriching lives with wellness, education and healing to some of Orange County’s most diverse communities.
Your support covered financial assistance for most arts-X-press middle schoolers from 17 school districts.
Your support created the opportunity for PSYE to perform two world premiere compositions. Accolades like this attracted the famous Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University to invite two PSYE graduating seniors to apply for admission with substantial scholarships attached. Talk about a dream come true!
And, as we look towards our summer Symphony on the Go! and Symphony in the Cities concerts, your support brings Pacific Symphony to you, your family and your friends in your neighborhood and to non-profit partners such as Age-Well Senior Services and Orange County Rescue Mission.
Your dream-making power is a game-changer! Your investment ensures music and dreams will remain woven into the fabric of our Orange County communities for years to come.
