Salem Symphonic Winds invests in new literature

Our members donate their time for rehearsals, performances and operation of the band, and pay annual dues to cover a portion of our operational expenses. We have invested heavily in projects to improve the acoustics and equipment of our home, the Historic Elsinore Theater. Proceeds from our ticket sales cover only a portion of our expenses. We rely on the generous contributions from our supporters to allow us to continue to bring great performances to the citizens of Salem and the surrounding areas.

Salem Symphonic Winds invests in future audiences

Salem Symphonic Winds has offered free tickets to school-aged students when accompanied by an adult. We are dedicated to making our concerts affordable for families. We encourage audience members of all ages to connect with the heritage of band music in America.

Your support is essential!

The downturn in the economy has affected all segments of our society. It has been especially hard on Arts groups who depend on donors to remain solvent. Recent Salem Symphonic Winds seasons have been operating at a deficit. Your gift will help ensure the success of the Salem Symphonic Winds and the magical performances ahead.

It’s fast, easy, tax-deductible, and you’ll feel good knowing that you support wonderful music in our community.
