Individual Giving

Support the Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera

The Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera relies on the generous support of individuals to ensure that Sacramento hears the best orchestral music and opera. Your tax-deductible donation helps us continue to produce world-class classical music concerts with virtuosic guest artists, bring community concerts into the eight city council districts and Sacramento Promise Zone, and teach 5,000 elementary school students how to play music. Your contribution allows us to continue all our programming and ensure that Sacramento remains a cultural and artistic leader.
