Become a Sponsor

The Illinois Symphony Orchestra Guild of Springfield and Board of Directors, along with its chairperson, Dale Rogers, want to add your name to our list of sponsors for the ISO’s Highland Fling Gala. The gala is the orchestra’s largest fundraising event of the year set for Sunday, April 28th, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza, Springfield.

Did you know? The Illinois Symphony Orchestra is central Illinois’ largest professional orchestra, serving over 35,000 patrons of the Springfield and Bloomington/Normal communities. The 2018 Springfield Gala raised over $110,000 for our orchestra; a fraction of its $1.3 million annual budget. We plan on beating that amount this year. With your help, we will.
