Welcome to Bravo, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s superfans. We share a passion for music, Milwaukee, and working with people committed to making a difference in our city. Bravo is a giving circle designed specifically for awesome Milwaukeeans, 21-45 years of age 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.
It’s no ordinary social club. We’re a collective – each year we collaborate and decide where our money will best help the MSO – annual fund support, education support, or special campaigns. As a part of Bravo, you will support one of Milwaukee’s premiere cultural organizations.
Incredible music, one-of-a-kind experiences, and the opportunity to mix and mingle with other Bravo members and some of your favorite MSO musicians. And the ability to make a serious impact at the MSO through a collective donation.
Your entry point starts at $500 or $1000 annually and provides you with exclusive access like never before. Pay all at once or with monthly payments. Think about it – for less than $50 or $100 a month, you get access to one-of-a-kind events, countless MSO ticket discounts, and stellar MSO benefits.
We throw some of the coolest events Milwaukee has to offer, exclusively for Bravo members.
