Support – Society Membership


2019-2020 Individual Annual Fund Contributors

Each year, ticket sales cover less than 25% of the Orchestra’s costs. Help support your Orchestra and the music you love by making a donation and becoming a member of the Symphony Society.

The Brazos Valley Symphony Society is most grateful to the individuals and companies who, by their monetary commitment, make possible the continued growth of the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra’s many outstanding artists, programs, and services.  Listed below are those individuals and organizations that have made gifts or pledges to the Symphony through the Annual Fund Drive as listed in the November 2019 concert program book.
