2024/2025 Season

If the Symphony depended solely on ticket sales, the concert would end at intermission.

The fact is, ticket sales cover 30% of operating costs for the Auburn Symphony. Individual donations and grants must cover the other 70%. Please consider the value of classical music in your community, give generously, and make sure the Auburn Symphony continues to fill your life with the joys of live music.

THE AUBURN SYMPHONY IS A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, ein #93-1039723. All gifts are tax-deductible, as allowed by law.
