A special hello from the CVSO Board

2019-2020 Season

The orchestra’s executive board and Music Director have made the very difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the current season. We simply couldn’t imagine a scenario where we would be able to convene to rehearse while ensuring everyone’s safety even if restrictions on gatherings are eased in the near future. While this was a difficult decision, we’re confident it is the right one and will allow us to regroup and come back well prepared for next year.

Birdies for Charity

To Our Generous Friends and Patrons,

We are excited to again announce our partnership with the Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program.  While the tournament will be a televised-only event June 22-28, local charities such as ours will once again benefit from the PGA Tour generosity.

This past year, in large part due to the money that Connecticut Valley Symphony Orchestra raised through Birdies for Charity, we were able to fund an exciting season with our new Music Director, Paul McShee, and Apprentice Conductor, Brandon Halberg.

In light of our shortened season and resulting revenue shortfall, our fund raising efforts are of vital importance. The CVSO goal this year is to raise $9,000 through Birdies in celebration of our 2020-2021 season, the orchestra’s 90th!  Please help our mission by donating today.

Birdies for Charity is a giving platform where nonprofits solicit donations and receive a 15% bonus on every dollar raised!

Simply visit our donation website, at https://travelerschampionship.com/birdies-for-charity/ and click on Donate Today or fill out this form and mail in your donation.

We thank you so much for your continued support!
