Our mission is to enhance our community through the performance of symphonic music that engages and inspires.
Revenue from ticket sales covers approximately 1/3 of the total costs to run the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. While this is typical in the orchestra field, it does present us with the need to ask our community members to support the orchestra and music they love. Please join our musicians, board, and staff, by giving any amount to help sustain symphonic music in the Twin Ports!
Your money is spent on:
- Music Performance: Your gift will be used to fund orchestra rehearsals, sheet music, hall rental, and musicians’ fees. All of these things are essential to bring symphonic music to life for our audiences.
- Youth Education: In order to build the audiences of tomorrow, the DSSO must reach out to the youth of today. Your gift will be used to fund Young People’s Concerts, the Lollipop Concerts and hands-on instrumental music instruction through the DSSO Youth Orchestras teaching and performances. Education is also supported by donations that allow us to offer reduced-priced student tickets.
- Operations: Behind the scenes, a symphony has many needs. Your gift will be used to fund administrative costs—everything from marketing our concerts to buying paper for the copy machine!
Any amount will help enrich the community with music. Thank YOU!!!
