Support and Celebrate Your Symphony!

Welcome to another fantastic season for the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra.  Be a part of the growth and transformation as we continue to build momentum with purpose and excitement!  Celebrate the cultural vibrancy of your city and community by supporting the symphony’s annual fund through your Society membership.


Our 2015-2016 season was truly a wonderful time full of exciting Pops concert “firsts” and overall season success.  We introduced you to world-class guest artists, performed timeless classical repertoire and broke attendance records for family favorite Pops in the Park.  Continuing our commitment to music education, we hosted the Patricia Furley Education Concerts for over 2,000 area 4th and 5th grade students.  The Corpus Christi Area Youth Orchestra (CCAYO) also had a fantastic 2015-2016 season, with membership growing to over 100 students. How can you help?  You can energize our growth and outreach with your contribution to the Symphony Society.  Your gift perpetuates a legacy of generosity and builds a firm foundation under our vibrant orchestra, a vital extension of our community’s growth and development.  Thank you!

As a member of the Symphony Society, you help ensure the continued success of the Gulf Coast’s premiere symphony orchestra.  In addition to your tax-deductible, charitable contribution, you will also receive exclusive membership benefits and privileges to enhance your symphony experience:
