Thank you!  Your friendship with the Helena Symphony – either as a concert goer, season ticket holder, donor, or volunteer – has been wonderfully important to us.  Whether you have been a patron with the Symphony for many years or you are new to our family – we are grateful for you!

Your partnership with the Symphony enables us to:

  • Bring music to more than 30,000 people from throughout the region, the state of Montana, and neighboring states;
  • Offer special concerts for over 5,000 children;
  • Share a free concert every summer (Symphony Under the Stars) with more than 16,000 people from all over the country, which makes a $1 million impact on the region’s economy.

None of this would be possible without you! We ask that you help us by considering one of the following ways to demonstrate your support. 

Help us meet a challenge match: An incredibly generous donor will match dollar for dollar every donation we receive before November 30.  Please consider making a new gift or an extra gift to help us meet this wonderful opportunity.  Your donation is doubled!!!

Join the Ostinato Circle: In music, ostinato is a recurring musical phrase or a series of notes.  Likewise, our Ostinato Circle is comprised of individuals and business sponsors that make a recurring monthly donation to the Helena Symphony.

Sponsor a Concert or a Guest Artist:  As a regional professional orchestra, the Helena Symphony’s concerts cost from $42,000-$60,000 each during the regular season. Your financial support helps us purchase the rights to music, pay our musicians, bring in world-renowned soloists, and so much more. 

Join Musical Chairs: Our musicians and patrons are the lifeblood of our work.  Whether you have an affinity for a particular instrument or a particular player joining Musical Chairs will help you gain an even greater sense of inclusion as you watch and listen to the Helena Symphony Orchestra.  

Make a general monetary donation: Any dollar amount has impact, whether $50 or $5,000.   

Because of your dedication, the Helena Symphony Orchestra & Chorale’s long-standing tradition of passionate music-making and innovative programming has become a source of pride, a cultural priority, and a transformative force in the Helena region. Help us continue this good work!
