Individual Support


The PSO depends on the generosity of music lovers like you to help us bring beautiful music to the Princeton area. With the support of our donors, the PSO is able to offer innovative programming through which we:

• Perform and present music, lectures, and other events in a variety of venues.
• Introduce audiences to music both new and traditional.
• Reach more than 10,000 school-aged children through PSO BRAVO!, our free education programs.

Although the PSO consistently sells out concerts, ticket sales cover only 25% of our annual budget. Music is a vital part of a community’s cultural resources, and we hope you will join us in ensuring that Princeton continues to have the best in live orchestral performances and music education.

The PSO is your symphony – help keep timeless, inspirational music playing right here in Princeton. Thank you for becoming a friend of the PSO!
