Bloomington Symphony Orchestra
When you make a donation to the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra, you know you're in good company.
Peter Jacobi of the Herald-Times calls the BSO “a gift to the community.” From light-hearted holiday pops shows and children’s concerts to the great masterpieces of orchestral music, our programs educate, enlighten, and entertain audiences of every age and background.
Your generous donation supports both our concerts and educational outreach work, and will be recognized in our programs unless you tell us you wish to remain anonymous.
THANK YOU. We really couldn't do it without you.

Make a gift to the Lotus Education & Arts Foundation and become a Friend of Lotus!

Ticket sales only provide about 50% of the budget for producing vibrant programs like the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, and so we are grateful for donors like you who support our mission: to create opportunities to experience, celebrate, and explore the diversity of the world’s cultures, through music and the arts.
