Make a Donation


The Prometheus Symphony Orchestra is entirely supported by member dues and by contributions from you, our audience, in order to fund our Music Director and guest artist salaries, publicity, printing, rental of performance space, and rental of score and parts. Each concert costs about $2000 and expenses continue to increase. 

Sponsor Beethoven’s 9th!

We are providing a special opportunity for you to help us bring an exciting performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony to the community—a piece rarely performed by community orchestras. And we have an anonymous donor who will match all contributions up to $1,000! 

For just a $100 tax-deductible donation, the Beethoven concert program will prominently feature your name, the name of your family, or the name of a loved one. The program might read: “This performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was made possible through the generosity of John Smithson.”
