Your Pasadena Symphony and POPS is a 96-year-old community treasure. Together, we’ve put Pasadena on the map as a first-rate cultural resource, and have raised the bar on how an orchestra can be woven into the fabric of a community. We deliver an inclusive vision of music that is accessible to all. From inspiring concerts that ignite the feeling of being alive, and connected to the world around you, to our vital music education programs – our mission is grounded in the belief that music is essential and every child should have access to music education.
Funding artistic excellence on the concert stage and high impact educational programs that the community deserves is an expensive endeavor requiring significant philanthropic support. Did you know that ticket sales to all of our concerts cover just 52% of our program costs? That’s right, 48% of our operating budget, including our concerts and music education programs come directly from tax-deductible donations from supporters just like you.
The Annual Fund Campaign of the Pasadena Symphony and POPS runs from October 1 to September 30. Your donations support the organization’s annual musical performances, community engagement efforts and music education programs. Thank you for considering making a donation to the Annual Fund Campaign to keep the musical momentum building! We need your support each year to keep the music alive and thriving. Give today!
