Membership in the Virtuoso Society is a special recognition for donors who contribute unrestricted dollars to the Plano Symphony Orchestra at significant levels as an outright gift or through a five year pledge.
The impact of the Virtuoso Society is profound. The annual unrestricted donations from its members give the Plano Symphony Orchestra flexibility to respond to patron needs and wishes in providing the best programming, talent and education.
In recent years, for example, the Plano Symphony Orchestra has been able to attract such talents as violinist Joshua Bell, renowned pianist Marc-Andre Hamlin, vocalist Monica Mancini, and two engagements with classical guitarist Christopher Parkening. This type of artistry can only come from committed symphony patrons and donors.
To show their commitment to annual giving, members of the Virtuoso Society will receive a distinguishing pin to wear during Plano Symphony Orchestra events. Designed exclusively for the Society, the small, distinctive pin is emblazoned with the symphony’s official logo, and topped with a precious stone to match the chosen level of giving. This pin symbolizes an ongoing and significant commitment to the arts and to the Plano Symphony Orchestra.
