Endow an Orchestra Chair or Fund

Naming Opportunities are ideal ways to celebrate, commemorate, memorialize and honor those we love.

By affixing their names to specific Santa Rosa Symphony chairs or programs, they become part of the music for generations to come! The Santa Rosa Symphony has a variety of endowing opportunities that can be crafted according to the wishes of the donor.
