Sponsor a Chair 2018-05-25T22:01:21+00:00

The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra is launching a new program.  As many other orchestras across the country have already done, the FSO is providing the opportunity for YOU to sponsor an FSO musician for the 2018-2019 concert season.  Connect your passion to your donation!

Why Should I Sponsor a Chair?:

  • Sponsoring a chair is a very visible way of showing your support to the organization AND developing a special relationship with one of our incredible musicians
  • Maybe “your” musician plays an instrument that you have always loved or that you used to play
  • Maybe you already know one of our musicians and would like to show your support of him/her in another way
  • Sponsoring a musician personalizes the orchestral experience

Benefits of Sponsoring a Chair:

  1. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are playing a major role in continuing the quality of the FSO’s musical programming.
  2. You will have your picture taken with your chosen musician; a memento for the wall in your home or office.
  3. At the beginning of the Season, the Executive Director will take you backstage to meet “your” musician, in case you do not already know him/her.
  4. You will receive a certificate declaring that you have sponsored a musician for the 2018-2019 FSO Season.
  5. Your (or your designee’s) name will appear in the program insert at each concert next to your sponsored musician. For example:  John Doe, the Ann & Jerry Smith sponsored chair.
  6. Your name will also appear on the FSO website as the sponsor of the listed musician.

What You Need to Know:

  • Sponsorship levels:  $500 to sponsor a student musician; $1000 for a professional section player; and $3000 for a Principal player in any section (excluding Andrew Hamby and Rebecca Scarnati).
  • Sponsorships are annual and would need to be renewed each season.
  • You can pay all at once for the sponsorship or in monthly installments throughout the season.
  • You can sponsor with a friend, each paying half for the chosen chair.
  • You will have the first right to renew next season, if you so desire.
  • Call the Executive Director, Cheryl Ossenfort (774-5107 ext. 104) to sign up.
  • Please note: annual chair sponsorships are different from endowed chairs. If you are interested in endowing a chair for perpetuity, please call Cheryl.
