Give Today

Oakland Symphony is an orchestra that our community loves into existence. 

Ticket sales provide only 33% of Oakland Symphony’s overall budget. But in the 2018-2019 season, over 860 individual donors supported Oakland Symphony. These individuals make up 94% of all Oakland Symphony supporters

Individual donors bring Oakland Symphony and Oakland Symphony Chorus to the Paramount stage. They send Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra on international tours. They place MUSE music educators in Oakland public schools.

“Not many orchestras could do what Oakland Symphony under Michael Morgan has accomplished. But in its inclusiveness and its promotion of the city’s musical culture, it’s a model of what a local orchestra might aspire to.”
-Michael Zwiebach, in SF Classical Voice, October 2019
