25-WORD DESCRIPTION:

Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra presents inspiring experiences that welcome all members of our community to discover and cultivate a profound, personal connection with live orchestral music.


HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:

  • $8 per month helps subsidize free tickets for the veteran community, through VetTix.org. ($96)
  • $25 per month provides LSO Guest Artist performances in schools and community sites free of charge. ($300)
  • $50 covers the cost of one underserved family to attend our Family Concerts.


A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Throughout the pandemic, LSO required an even greater focus on generosity, as we, like all of our peer organizations, saw a drop in ticket sales and therefore an even greater reliance on our long-term supporters. The fact that LSO continued to pay every musician 100% of their salary, even when we were not able to fit them all onstage due to safety protocols, was appreciated and supported by our donors.

“LSO’s commitment to and support of our family of musicians has been a cornerstone of the organization. Nothing shows this better than the incredible step that LSO has taken in paying all the musicians this year. It is such a beautiful thing - it brings tears to my eyes to think of what this means for us all.”

“This isn’t only about compensation; it sends us a message that our community values the arts and values us and wants to see us get through this pandemic. It’s been hard on us not playing together; it chips away at the essence of who we are. And when this pandemic is over, we will be bursting with joy to get on that stage and share our gifts with you.”
