Why Give to The Symphonia?
Since 2004, The Symphonia has been celebrating a passion for music and a commitment to community. The ensemble’s success is built on a solid foundation of:
Over the years, The Symphonia’s Connoisseur Concert Series has developed a devoted following by performing works by lesser-known contemporary composers alongside some of the most beloved works in classical music. New Directions is a series of engaging musical experiences featuring a blend of music, storytelling and images performed in Delray Beach.
Creative energy and community reach are both amplified when arts organizations work together. Festival of the Arts BOCA, Master Chorale of South Florida, Old School Square, the City of Boca Raton and Boca Ballet Theatre are among the many exciting partner organizations.
Nothing brings our musicians greater joy than introducing young people to the world of classical music. Grandparents and parents can share in that joy through our Meet the Orchestra program, which invites children to interact with musicians in various settings, including live dress rehearsals and an “instrument petting zoo.” In addition to nurturing those audiences of the future, our education efforts extend to today’s audiences with pre-concert talks and Box Lunch It, an up-close and personal opportunity to sit in on a rehearsal and enjoy lunch with the conductor and soloist as well as The Symphonia’s talented musicians.
We are proud to offer Building a String Orchestra and Self-Esteem through the Delray Beach Boys & Girls Club. More than teaching children how to play an instrument, this program teaches children how to work toward a goal. Through music, children learn the importance of perseverance and self-discipline. The program taps into the power of music to equip children from underserved communities with the life skills that can help them succeed in school and in life.
