Support the BSO’s Future

Donor support is vital in ensuring that the BSO continues to bring world-class music, award-winning education programs, and leading artists to our communities. Becoming a member today is the best way to secure the orchestra’s future.

Your tax-deductible donation makes all the difference for our next 100 years! Every gift, no matter the size, helps make a difference.


Almost 60% of the BSO’s budget comes from our donors. It is donors like YOU who support innovation in the concert hall, classroom, and community!

BSO Membership Benefits

Create inspiring and exciting musical experiences for people of all ages across the state of Maryland by contributing, and you’ll be recognized with special privileges and access for one calendar year from the date of your gift.

Each level after BACH includes the benefits of the levels listed above it.
Digital alternatives to various access benefits will be available when in-person events are not possible.

Benefits are effective for a full year from the date of your contribution. All benefits are available to donors, regardless of primary attendance venue or support designation. Donors who give through a giving vehicle for which a tax receipt may not be issued are ineligible to receive benefits with a stated fair market value. Matching gifts apply toward the total Membership Level unless otherwise indicated.
