Celebrate Community Support Month with a Gift to Pacific Symphony

November is Pacific Symphony’s annual Community Support Month–a celebration of gratitude for everyone who supports and enables our commitments to the greater Orange County area. In a month known for celebrating the gift of “thanks,” Pacific Symphony thanks you for your participation that affords us unique opportunities to support a lengthy list of community partners.

Each season, Pacific Symphony provides exceptional musical experiences onstage in our magnificent Segerstrom Concert Hall. We also work hard to nurture our Southern California communities in a wide variety of ways. Free performances, including our Symphony in the Cities concerts and our Symphony on the Go! mobile stage, inspire music lovers across the region.

Initiatives like Heartstrings: Santa Ana Strings and each of our Heartstrings partnerships impact thousands in greater Orange County. Our wide-ranging music education programs and youth ensembles foster lifelong learning in students and young musicians each year.

From Orange County schools, to senior centers, to numerous other community institutions, your support enables Pacific Symphony to engage and serve those serving the greater community. Your support and passion propel us towards great heights in musical artistry and community engagement. You are the reason that Pacific Symphony is more than an orchestra.

Just recently, Pacific Symphony was named Nonprofit of the Year for senatorial district 37 due to its commitment to providing free, live music and music education throughout Southern California during the pandemic, and after the re-opening of public events. We are proud of this recognition, but realize it is due to the consistent support of patrons like you.

Please support your Pacific Symphony by donating as generously as you are able. The work we do in your community is as much a part of who we are as the music we perform.

Celebrate Community Support Month by continuing to be the foundation that allows us to engage, empower, and embrace communities through the tremendous power and joy of music.

Community support month concludes on November 29th with the famous Giving Tuesday event. Giving Tuesday is big money in small bites. Your gift combined with other gifts received during this global event adds up to a significant and lasting impact on Pacific Symphony and the communities we serve.

On top of that, there is still time to double your impact! Every gift during Community Support Month and on Giving Tuesday will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000,000 by renowned philanthropist, John Tu. In his words, “Music is everything. Music is love. Music is the soul of your mind.”

Our community programs simply wouldn’t exist without your generous philanthropy. Please consider making a gift today to help sustain these life-changing and enriching community initiatives now and for the future.

Thank you so very much. We’ll see you soon.

Coming Soon: Giving Tuesday

Since its first year in 2012, Giving Tuesday has become an internationally recognized movement of generosity. This year, it falls on Nov. 30. Here in the United States, that’s the Tuesday after Thanksgiving weekend. 

November is a very special time here at Pacific Symphony. Not only are we welcoming the start of our 2021-22 Pops Season underwritten by The Sharon and Tom Malloy Family, we are also observing our annual Community Support Month. No matter how you engage with our community, thank you for your support. Just in case if you haven’t heard it in a while, it truly wouldn’t be the same without you.  

If you join us for an event this season, don’t forget to think about how far we’ve come. From our early days in the late 1970s to now, there is so much to be grateful for. We’ve been through a lot together.  

For those of you who stay connected with us online, don’t forget to stay tuned to our social media pages and email communication for ways on how we’re going to thank you. If you want to join us in the conversation online, we’ll be using #PacificSymphony #GivingTuesday in our posts.
