CRESCENDO CLUB GIVING
CRITICAL TO OUR SUCCESS
Crescendo Club members are critical to the success of the MSO’s main stage performances and artistic achievements. Their philanthropic leadership also enables the MSO to continue serving our community through our nationally-recognized Education and Community Engagement Programs.
The MSO remains steadfast in our commitment to serve our community. With the help of all of our donors, we raise more than $1 million annually to support our important work throughout Madison, Dane County and south-central Wisconsin. Over the years, the MSO has been a diligent steward of these gifts. The MSO takes pride in its tradition of strong management with an unrivaled record of fiscal stability and prudent stewardship of a nearly $4 million operating budget.
The support of Crescendo Club members composes nearly 50% of all contributed income, helping to substantially bridge the difference between ticket revenue and the cost of our programs.
HOSPITALITY AND FRIENDSHIP
Crescendo Club members are invited to celebrate with the MSO at the open and close of each season with John DeMain, symphony musicians, and our guest artist . . . just our special way of saying thank you.
