Sponsor the Arts

The Quad City Symphony Orchestra has a variety of sponsorship opportunities available throughout the year. Costs for these sponsorships range from $500 to $50,000, and each garners the recognition to match. Every concert we do is preceded by a direct mail piece to 7,000 area residents, and an email blast to our list of over 3,500 interested parties. Concert attendance ranges from 2,000 for an average Masterworks concert to 8,000 for our Riverfront Pops concert. Imagine your name paired with ours in front of thousands of Quad Citians.
