Symphony Association

Why join the Symphony Association?

The Symphony Association for the University of Wyoming aids the orchestra in so many important ways.  Scholarships help recruit the very best musicians.  Travel funds take the orchestra around the region, sharing its gift of music with a larger audience while making younger artists interested in attending UW.  Equipment purchases bring you their sounds on the best possible instruments.  We have helped commission two new works for the orchestra, bringing you exciting world premieres and helping the orchestra win a 2005 ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award.

Please join us in helping the UWSO reach ever-higher musical and educational goals.  Note that Association membership is separate from season ticket purchases.
