The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is a nonprofit organization and relies on the support of individual donors to help fulfill its mission and bring the power of orchestral music to Milwaukee.

Together, your collective contributions enable us to continue our tradition of musical excellence, to inspire young minds through our educational programs and enrich our city’s cultural tapestry. Thank you for your generosity!

“What makes somewhere a great place to live? A vibrant cultural life must be near the top of any list. As members of the MSO, we are thankful to see up close the transformative effects music has on listeners. Whether it is an audience being swept up in the triumph of a Beethoven symphony or the emotional connection of a movie score, or the thousands of children each year that learn about orchestral instruments and music, the MSO provides experiences that feed the souls of greater Milwaukee residents as only the arts can. This is why we are proud to be members of the orchestra and donors to the MSO. We cherish and rely on your support and hope you will join us in giving to the MSO.”

-Megumi Kandra Hemann & Dietrich Hemann
