Support the Concord Orchestra
Contributions help us bring you the music
The Concord Orchestra is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, but the revenue we receive from subscriptions and ticket sales covers only about 50% of our expenses. We are most grateful for individual and corporate contributions, which enable us to perform a wide variety of concerts enjoyed by concert-goers of all ages. Contributions, which are tax deductible, should be mailed to: The Concord Orchestra, P.O. Box 381, Concord, MA 01742.

Sponsor a Chair
Since 2006, we have offered you the opportunity to dedicate an orchestra chair as a gift in the name of your family or a loved one. Your family's name or special person is recognized in each program under the section where your chair is located. You will also be mentioned as a special donor to the orchestra in our Angel category for the season. The suggested gift is $4000 for the concertmaster chair, $2000 for a principal chair for the season and $1000 for a section chair. Funds will be used to support the general operations of the Concord Orchestra.
We hope that you will take advantage of this program not only to support the orchestra with this tax-deductible gift, but also to honor a special person or family member who made music a central part of his or her life. You, our audiences, our advertisers, our contributors, our corporate sponsors and our volunteers make up our community. We are eternally grateful. Thank you.
