our financial supporters...

The Red Cedar Symphony is honored to have generous and faithful financial supporters. When you contribute to the Red Cedar Symphony you join with others who believe that the arts enhance our quality of life. The people of northwestern Wisconsin enjoy a wealth of talent through its theatre groups, visual artists, and musical groups. Red Cedar Symphony is one unique facet of that cultural gem.

Ticket proceeds alone do not cover the expense of producing concerts. Ticket sales account for roughly one-third of our operating budget, while another one-third is from grants that we have received from the Wisconsin Arts Board on an annual basis. The awarding panel was impressed with the Red Cedar Symphony, saying, "this organization does a lot within a small budget" and "Red Cedar Symphony does a good job making art a priority for its community."

But, one-third and one-third do not a whole make. This is where you can help. Your donation can help the orchestra continue to provide quality orchestral music to rural northern Wisconsin as well as help us continue to promote the study of stringed instruments among young musicians. By making a donation to the Red Cedar Symphony, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your dollars are helping to provide a unique experience to musicians and listeners alike. Your support helps to pay the salary of our conductor, executive director and personnel manager/librarian. Contributions also help to purchase or rent music, pay for advertising, and reimburse some travel expenses for musicians.

The Red Cedar Symphony is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, so your contributions may be tax-deductible. If you are not already on our patron list, why not consider a donation today and help us keep the music playing?

We need your support!
