The Lower Merion Symphony makes exceptional classical music widely available through free concerts in the Philadelphia area. We are inspired by the music, not the money, whether that means old favorites like Rachmaninoff's "Piano Concerto No. 2" or world premieres like our upcoming performance of Romeo Cascarino's "Pathways of Love."
After 25 seasons, the Lower Merion Symphony remains one of only a few top-tier musical organizations dedicated to providing free concerts. Our concerts are free to the public, but they are far from free to produce!
Here are just a few examples of the costs your gift today helps cover:
$2,000 - The cost to rent a piano for a special upcoming performance
$750 - The cost for delivery and tuning for Steinway Artist solo pianos
$750 - The cost to rent Harriton High School for the dress rehearsal and the concert
$700 - The cost to rent music for Shostakovich's "Eight Waltzes for Film" for the December 15 concert
$600 - The cost to print programs for one concert
$300 - The average cost to provide an honorarium to distinguished soloists
