USC Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Portnoy

Support the USC Symphony Orchestra

With your support, the USC Symphony Orchestra can continue to present challenging programs for young musicians, book first-rate soloists and continue its admirable presentation level.

Help keep the music playing

Please consider joining others in supporting our artistic and educational endeavors by making a gift to the USC Symphony Orchestra.

The costs associated with producing such a superb student orchestra are significant. The School of Music supports the Orchestra enthusiastically to the best of its ability, yet this provides modest sustenance since the School's budget must also support every other activity in its domain. Accordingly, box office receipts determine to what extent the orchestra can promote concerts, book world class soloists, and pay the rent.

Your contribution, in any amount, is welcomed and appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support!
