“I strongly believe that the Fort Wayne Philharmonic greatly enhances the quality of life in Northeast Indiana. For years, it has provided my family and me an opportunity to enjoy live classical music. The experience has brightened many dreary winter nights. I’m thankful for the continued commitment of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic to provide outstanding music to this region and I’m anxious to support your mission.”

Phil the Community with Music
Thank you for being a loyal music lover and audience member at the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. Because of you, beloved music continues to resound, imaginations take flight, and souls are stirred to greater heights.

Did you know that ticket sales cover only 25% of the cost of every seat sold? That means the Philharmonic must raise 75% of its budget from loyal donors like you who believe in the transformative power of great music to improve and add meaning to people’s lives.

A donation to The Phil enables the orchestra to:

  • Touch the lives of 30,000 students from 15 neighboring counties through Young People’s Concerts and Ensembles in the Schools programs every year
  • Perform for thousands of older adults through performances on the Embassy Theatre stage as well as in nursing homes and care facilities
  • Flourish as one of the cultural treasures of the region

Only with your support can the Fort Wayne Philharmonic continue to add artistic vitality to the community. Please use the Donate link to donate online or call Clarissa Reis, Assistant Director of Development, at 260.481.0775 for more information.
