Why Give?

Legacy

We are dedicated to preserving the legacy of symphonic music in San Antonio. We acknowledge the legacy of composers and artists who bring a genre of music that resonates with shared human experiences throughout history. We strive to create a new sense of awe and inspiration in the lives of everyone who hears a live performance by presenting this music to our highest artistic capacity.

Community

Symphonic music offers rich personal experiences and has the power to cultivate greater community cohesion through shared experiences. The San Antonio Philharmonic strives to create greater access to performances through affordable concert tickets and special engagements in community spaces throughout San Antonio.

Education

To cultivate the next generation of artists and music enthusiasts, we offer 34 education concerts in area schools and conducts in-school presentations and performances. Research demonstrates that learning to play an instrument and engage in arts activities enhances a child’s educational success and inspires life-long musical pursuits that can enrich and empower their lives.
