ADVANCE THE ARTS
A fundraising program for PTA and PTOs
Many school systems around the country have experienced reductions in their budgets for arts education programs. As a premier regional cultural institution, the Stamford Symphony partners with Parent Teacher Organizations to help raise funds for arts programs in local schools.
Every year, through Advance the Arts , the Stamford Symphony provides Parent Teacher Organizations with vouchers for tickets to our Sunday Orchestra Classics concerts. The PTOs sell the vouchers, retaining the proceeds for their schools*. The proceeds must, in turn, be used by the schools to fund Arts Education programs.
Families who purchase the vouchers can look forward to a fabulous family outing beginning at 2:00 pm with the MusiKids interactive pre-concert program (designed for children 7-12 years old) and then, at 3:00 pm, experiencing an exciting musical performance with their families and classmates.
To order ticket vouchers for your school or to learn more about the program, contact our Education Manager at MusicEd@stamfordsymphony.org
