Donations and grants make it possible for your Poway Symphony Orchestra to present live performances of the great masterpieces of symphonic music. Our unique concerts enrich the performing arts scene in North County Inland for the benefit of all.

The Poway Symphony Orchestra Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, invites individuals, corporations, and foundations to consider financially supporting the Orchestra.

Your orchestra has experienced tremendous growth, both artistically and musically, under the leadership of Music Director and Conductor John LoPiccolo. The successes of the last several seasons have set the stage for taking your orchestra to the next level. Moving ahead, three concerts each season will continue to be offered at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, the ideal regional concert hall for music lovers in the region. Looking towards the future, the Orchestra plans to expand its concert season beyond the current three annual performances and is considering exciting special projects. World-class guest artists will be invited to join the Orchestra in major showcase appearances.

Each year we must cover rising costs, from expenses at the Poway Center to fees for soloists and for additional musicians, music purchases, publicity and more. Ticket sales cover only a portion of all expenses.

It is hoped many in the community will recognize our efforts towards growth and excellence, and hence continue or increase your financial support.
