Giving to the La Mirada Symphony Orchestra Supports the Arts
Did you know the actual cost of each concert is seventeen thousand dollars ($17,000)?
The La Mirada Symphony Orchestra strives to maintain its policy of offering FREE quality concerts to the residents of Southern California.
In 1961, creating a Symphony Orchestra for the community was the dream of Blanche Nissim, a La Mirada resident and concert pianist. She and a determined group of community advocates and local musicians united to make her dream a reality. Their Mission was to provide free concerts for residents who appreciated the cultural value of beautiful music in their lives and an opportunity for local musicians to share their talents.
The make-up of the orchestra has changed from mainly hobbyist volunteer musicians to including the many professional musicians we enjoy hearing today. However, excellence comes with a price. In an age when support for the arts from public money is growing increasingly scarce, individual support is more vital than ever.
A gift to the La Mirada Symphony is an investment in the potential for the musical arts to create a better world. You have options. Make a choice.
Whichever you prefer, know that your commitment is key to enriching the symphony with the opportunity to continue assisting us with providing concerts to the local population and opening up possibilities.
