CONCERTS AND SERIES

Symphony Center presents a wide array of concerts, series and programs in all genres of music, including classical, jazz, world music, new music and more. Sponsorship of concerts and series align sponsors with the production of the art itself, and generates excellent brand exposure. Customized sponsorship packages are designed to meet varied objectives including VIP access, visibility and hospitality.

 

SYMPHONY BALL

The CSOA’s Symphony Ball — one of the most prestigious annual events in the city’s arts and culture community — celebrates the launch of the new concert season each fall. Corporate Sponsors of Symphony Ball enjoy high-profile recognition, exclusive entertainment packages and extensive season-long benefits while demonstrating valuable support for the orchestra to civic leaders and to the CSO’s most prominent patrons and donors.

 

CORPORATE NIGHT

The CSOA’s Corporate Night event welcomes more than 100 companies and executives to Symphony Center each spring, along with 1,500 of the CSO’s most passionate patrons and audiences. This annual corporate event pairs the orchestra with a high-profile guest artist from the world of rock, pop or jazz. The proceeds from this important fundraising event support the CSO’s operations and nationally-acclaimed education and community engagement programs.

Critical acclaim has resounded from media outlets around the world. CSO tour sponsors leverage extraordinary experiences and generate value — strengthening global reputations, building relationships and increasing brand awareness.
