Community Circle

A patron in the Community Circle contributes up to $124 to the annual fund or holds a subscription to a Neighborhood Series, Young People's Family concerts, Tiny Tots or flex package. Community Circle patrons receive complimentary invitations to our Patron Appreciation Concerts.


Members hold a subscription to a full season Classical, Pops, or Paradise Jazz series. Their commitment to regular concert attendance and participation in Member events supports the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center as a place where our community can connect to music like never before.


Friends make generous philanthropic contributions to the Annual Fund between $125 - $2,499. The support of these patrons provides the opportunity for the DSO to further its impact throughout our community. Patrons at the Friend and Friend Premier levels receive the following benefits, listed below.

Governing Members

Governing Members serve as voting members of the organization and ambassadors for the Orchestra in the community. Their generous support is celebrated through exclusive post-concert receptions with guest artists, private performances by DSO musicians, and more. In addition to all Friend Premier perquisites, Governing Members receive the following exclusive benefits, listed below.

Gabrilowitsch Society

Patrons who contribute $10,000 and above are recognized as members of the Gabrilowitsch Society, established at the start of our 125th Anniversary year to celebrate those who have made leadership commitments to lead the DSO into the future as a financially viable and stable organization.
