The Muscatine Symphony Orchestra, a major cultural asset of the community, is totally dependent on the generosity of donors to supply the means for continuation and growth.  Even though funding is sought from various entities including local industries and businesses and State of Iowa grants, ticket sales and promotions are vital.  Individual support remains the critical element.  Individual contributions constitute approximately 25% of the total funding needed to operate the MSO; The vast majority of funding is required for compensation for our Music Director, and the various supplemental players that are needed throughout the concert season.

Muscatine and the MSO are indeed most fortunate to have a person of Brianís skills and personality to lead the orchestra and to serve as a resource for other performing arts organizations in the community.  Our being able to sponsor and provide leadership for the Youth Symphony is, alone, a priceless asset for aspiring musicians.

The local players, numbering over 35, both practice and perform and join you in financially supporting the orchestra.  Though the players are unpaid, they receive great value in having the opportunity to develop their skills and present the finest of symphonic music to you, the members of the community.  All contributions are appreciated and those giving over $50 are recognized in the program notes. Please join us in providing the financial means to continue making the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra a vital part of our community.  Thank you!
