Personal Giving

Support the Lake Forest Symphony in a number of ways. As you may know, ticket sales cover less than one third of our production costs, as is common for professional orchestras. Most of our revenue comes from individuals like you — people who love great classical music and want to ensure that it thrives in our community.

Donations of any amount are sincerely appreciated. Please consider joining or renewing your support so that our performances will continue to be a source of enjoyment for music lovers and will further our work in the community.
