End of Year Appeal


Dear Friends,

I hope that you are well and happy during this festive period. We are now at the midpoint of our 2019-20 season at the Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra. In early November, we had a very successful concert highlighting works by Russian composers. Later on we played our Holiday Pops concert that featured well-known favorites and a few fun surprises.

Our orchestral musicians perform for the love of the music and are very ably guided and conducted by our award-winning Music Director, Michael Korn, who is now in his 11th season with the WPO.

As is the case everywhere in the arts, however, income from tickets covers only a part of our expenses, which include hall rental, and music rental and licensing fees. To maintain the high performing and programming standards of our orchestra for the benefit our Waltham-area audiences and for the local students we serve, I am turning to you. You can give easily by clicking on the “Donate Now” button above or below. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Any amount is appreciated, but if you can send $100, you will gain a place at the Supporter Level; this amount helps to maintain our policy of free admission to children at our regular concert. A $500 donation will earn you Conductor Level status. This level of donation helps underwrite the music and guest performers for a concert.

You will help in the mission of providing high-quality music to our community!

Best wishes for a healthy and enjoyable holiday season and New Year. I hope to see you at our concerts during the remainder of the season—we are planning an all-Brahms concert in March, and a spring concert in May relating to the Americas, in which we also feature some remarkable student talent on our stage.

Thank you from our Board of Directors, musicians, community volunteers, and Music Director!
