Individual Gifts

ANNUAL FUND

Join our growing community of music lovers and music makers and enjoy the rewards membership has to offer. For more than 65 years, the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra has been a source of pride and a cultural priority in the Shreveport area, engaging people in all segments of the community.

The Music-by-the-Month Plan is a convenient and affordable way to support the SSO’s Annual Fund on an ongoing basis.  By enrolling in this plan, your credit card will be automatically billed at intervals determined by you (monthly, quarterly, or for a fixed number of months), making it easy to spread your payments over a period of time.

Shreveport Symphony Orchestra's Annual Fund drive is based on the fiscal year, which begins July 1 and ends June 30. Individual and corporate donations are critical to the support system of the SSO. Donors may join The Conductor's Circle with a gift of $1,000 or more and enjoy Symphony Club hospitality before and during Willis-Knighton Masterworks Series concerts at the RiverView Theater, complimentary valet parking, and invitations to exclusive Patron events.  See donor benefits
