Sponsor a Musician

San Luis Obispo Symphony musicians are talented members of our community. You can show your appreciation for their hard work and honor their accomplishments by sponsoring the chair of an orchestra member.

Sponsoring a musician is easy! You may choose a specific person or section you would like to support, or you can choose the amount you would like to donate and we will match you with a musician who needs a sponsor. You will be recognized in our program books for your generous contribution. For more information, please contact development@slosymphony.org.
