Dear Friend of the Arts,
The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra (LCSO) began as a community orchestra, created by a group of people who had a passion for great music and a desire to share their talents with their neighbors. Through years of performances this symphony has reached out to generations of people with innovative programs. Striving for artistic and musical excellence, the LCSO has become an orchestra community of diverse musicians, creative individuals, hard working volunteers and eager audiences.
State funding for the arts continues to be dramatically decreased. At the same time, many of the corporate donors in the area needed to reduce their donations due to the struggling economy. As funding sources diminish, the LCSO maintains its presence as a cultural leader through two factors:
- Responsible budget planning and careful implementation of funds
- The donations of many individual people and small businesses that care about the quality of life in this community
It has been remarkable to witness individuals and small businesses giving from their heart to assist the work of our talented musicians. While donations at any level are helpful and appreciated, there is a push to encourage people to donate at $500 level and make a significant difference or to donate $2500 or more to become a featured Concert Sponsor. This type of sponsorship includes tickets to your preferred concert, as well as, recognition at the concert and in the advertising promotions. Talk to a board member or call the office for more information on what is the best type of donation for your circumstances.
We have made it simple to donate online at any time.
Or send your gift in the form of a check to:
LCSO, P.O. Box 563, La Porte, IN 46352-0563
Come and hear the difference that you have made for the orchestra. I look forward to seeing you at the concerts.
Interim Executive Director
