Supporting the Stamford Symphony – A Powerful and Compelling Investment

The Stamford Symphony Business Partnership is designed to connect your business, employees, and clients with great music, extraordinary musicians, and the wider Fairfield County community. Whether it be complimentary tickets to concerts, live music in your offices, or presenting a free concert in a public space for the enjoyment of all, your business can make a tangible difference to the well-being of the community at large.

Your Community

Strong and enduring cultural institutions in the community distinguish a good city from a great one. An orchestra, theater or museum provides that touchstone, building a vibrant community that is attractive for corporations and their employees, families, young professionals and seniors.

Your Business

Research from Americans for the Arts states that 82% of Americans believe arts and culture are important to local businesses and the economy.

Your People

Enhance your employees’ work/life balance by enabling them to enjoy the transformative power of great music.

Your Orchestra

Acclaimed by The New York Times as a “cultural force,” the Stamford Symphony is comprised of musicians from major New York City orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and Broadway.
