Your gift of support for the Negaunee Music Institute at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will help us ignite sparks of curiosity about music that lead to transforming experiences.

You can make a gift in general support of all Institute programs or you can designate your gift to the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.

A gift for the Institute will help us to continue education and family concerts, open rehearsals for students, programs designed to serve Chicago Public Schools lacking music education programs and opportunities for Chicagoland residents to attend and participate in performances and activities at Symphony Center and in community locations.

A gift for the Civic Orchestra of Chicago will help to continue the extraordinary work of this training ensemble, the only orchestra of its kind affiliated with a major American orchestra. Your gift also helps to keep Civic performances available to audiences at a minimal cost.

In addition, as 2018/19 marks the 100th season of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and the CSO's concert series for children, a unique centennial sponsorship opportunity has been created. By increasing your past support by $1,000 for the current 2018/19 season and pledging to do the same for the 2019/20 season you will be recognized as a Centennial Season Patron. As part of this notable group you will receive special recognition and access opportunities over two seasons. For more information on becoming a Centennial Season Patron please contact Karen Bullen in the Development Office at 

Thank you for making a gift to support the programs of the Negaunee Music Institute!
