Bravo

WHO WE ARE

Welcome to Bravo, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s superfans. Bravo is a giving circle designed specifically for awesome Milwaukeeans, ages 45 and under, with a love for music and the arts, who are looking for one-of-a-kind cultural opportunities and a way to boost their giving power. We share a passion for music, Milwaukee, and working with people committed to making a difference in our city.

We’re a collective – each year we decide where our money will best help the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra – annual fund support, education support, or special campaigns. It’s no ordinary social club. As a part of Bravo, we support one of Milwaukee’s premiere cultural organizations.

WHAT WE DO

We make a serious impact at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra through a collective donation. And there’s also incredible music, one-of-a-kind experiences, and the opportunity to gain exclusive access to renowned guest artists and Milwaukee Symphony musicians

HOW TO JOIN

Your entry point starts at $250 annually and provides you with exclusive access like never before. Pay all at once or with monthly payments. Think about it – starting at less than $25 a month, you make a huge impact, plus you receive access to one-of-a-kind events and stellar MSO benefits.
