End of Year Campaign

December 2022

Dear Friends,

I hope that you are well during this holiday season. We are thrilled to be back playing music again! In October, we gave our first classical concert, and earlier this month, our Winter Pops concert featured the winner of our Student Concerto Competition on cello with the orchestra.

Our musicians perform for the love of the music and are led by Music Director Michael Korn, who has won a major national award for creative programming with the WPO.  This season has been offering a particularly notable array of diverse and little-heard composers. You can read their bios here.

As is the case most everywhere in the arts, however, income from tickets covers only a part of our costs, including hall rentals, music rental, and personnel expenses. To maintain our orchestra’s high performing standards for the benefit of our Waltham-area audiences and for the local students we serve, I am turning to you for support. Please give by clicking the Donate button below, or by sending a check to: Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra, P.O. Box 541188, Waltham, MA 02454. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Any amount is appreciated, but if you send $100, as a Supporter, you help to maintain our policy of free admission to children. A $500 donation will earn you Conductor Level status -– helping to underwrite one concert.

Best wishes for the holidays and a healthy New Year. I hope to see you at our March and May concerts featuring interesting violin and cello concertos, symphonies by Brahms and Florence Price, and more.

Many thanks from our Board of Directors, musicians, and Music Director!

David Salstein
