Perhaps the best things in life are free. Certainly our concert admission is free. However, did you know it cost almost $31,000 to produce just a single concert?
Your membership in the Rio Hondo Symphony Association makes a difference - really! Since memberships make up a third of the Association's income, there would be no orchestra without contributions from people like you.
How fortunate that the entire community has access to truly great music for the price of a membership! The musicians work for small honorariums and thousands of volunteer hours help support the concerts and the children's programs.
Wisely, the orchestra's founders provided concerts for free. Over time they engaged the entire community with a passion for classical music. When you become a member, you are paying tribute to the founders and musicians of long ago. Your contribution symbolizes two things: your belief that music is a miraculous work of the human spirit and secondly, your desire to keep music in your life and in your community. .
The Glorious 80th Season
Welcome to the Rio Hondo Symphony's glorious 80th Season of FOUR FREE CONCERTS! Performing high quality classical music, close to home, for 80 years is a milestone to be celebrated.
The costs for every season have been challenging, but lovers of beautiful classical music have always provided financial support when needed. It will take hundreds of contributors and thousands of dollars for another great season. Within continuing budget constraints, Conductor Kimo Furumoto has again created another season of unique and varied programming that is guaranteed to be enriching and entertaining.
Why not experience the joy of helping to maintain admission-free live classical music in our community by writing a tax-deductible check today for $25 (or more) to become a Symphony Association member? Better yet, please write a check for $150 (or more) and enjoy the buffet receptions after all four concerts. If you have never been a member, please join now.
