WE OWE EVERY NOTE TO YOU!

Your investment in the ASO allows us to:

• Provide music education to more than 25,000 area students through free concerts, in-class music curriculum programs, and the Alabama Symphony Youth Orchestra.

• Offer dynamic programming at affordable ticket prices, ensuring people of all means have access to our quality performances.

• Attract and retain talented musicians who serve our community as artists, teachers and cultural leaders.

• Generate more than $18 million annually for our state’s economy

• Bring acclaim to Birmingham as a vibrant intellectual and cultural community.


Gifts of all sizes help support our mission of changing lives through music, and we want our supporters to feel appreciated, informed, and engaged. Visit the links below to learn more about giving to the ASO and see the exciting benefits we offer our supporters.
