Friends and Supporters

The Diablo Symphony Orchestra has proudly reached its 61st season, making us one of the most successful orchestras in California. The support of patrons and friends, however, is needed to continue our long-standing tradition of providing high-quality performances, in high-quality venues, at affordable prices. Your donation will be a significant help. We assure you that your donation will be used not only to help continue the kinds of performances you’ve come to expect from the DSO, but also to help continue diverse education and outreach programs, including concerts in schools and Rossmoor performances that respectively reach young people and seniors in the Contra Costa community.

We would like to recognize the following organizations and individual contributors who have generously supported the Diablo Symphony Orchestra with gifts recorded in the last year. Their invaluable financial and in-kind support help make our mission possible.
