Annual Fund Campaign

It takes much more than ticket sales alone to support the programs of the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra. In fact, ticket sales only account for one-quarter of the cost of putting on our concerts! We rely on individuals like you to keep ticket prices down and to support the many educational, outreach and entertaining programs we provide the Baton Rouge community each year.

For the Annual Fund Campaign, which runs from July 1 through June 30, our goal is to raise $300,000 through individual support.
