Please join us at 6:30 prior to each Classical Series concert (except the February performance where we feature our annual Valentine’s dinner) for a pre-concert forum about that evening’s performance or a short performance of the ISU Chamber Orchestra. During the forums, the conductor will discuss what he loves about the music and take questions from audience members. Special guests may include soloists, ISU faculty members, and other music lovers. You can enjoy the stunning ambiance of the magnificent Stephens Performing Arts Center while having a glass of wine, beer, coffee, soft drink, delicious desserts, and snacks, all available for purchase. So come early, visit with friends, and make it a full evening out at the symphony!
The Idaho State Civic Symphony sponsors master classes with most of our visiting artists. Master classes are usually on the Wednesday evening prior to the Friday classical concerts. For specific information regarding any of the visiting artists or if you know of an advanced student who would like to participate, please contact Heather Sandy at 208.234.1587.
Patrons who donate $100 person/$200 couple are invited to a post-concert reception in honor of our Concert Sponsor. Attendees are able to meet and greet the Guest Artists, the conductor, and the players while enjoying complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres from a local caterer.
In addition to the above benefits, Concert Sponsors receive 12 complimentary tickets to the sponsored concert, a full-page ad in our program, as well as recognition in other publicity materials and an acknowledgment prior to the start of the concert.
Check back often for new and exciting patron benefits. We’re constantly thinking up new ways to enhance and enliven your concert-going experience!
