Berkeley Symphony is committed to providing recognition and benefits in a mutually beneficial partnership. Business partners have access to such perquisites as branding opportunities, access to artists, community building, and much more.


Berkeley Symphony depends on our annual Benefit Gala, Berkeley Symphony’s largest and most important fundraising event of the season. With 250-300 guests each year, our Gala generates the needed funds to sustain a full range of our activities, including:

  • World premiere commissions
  • Performances by renowned guest soloists
  • Award-winning Music in the Schools program, which provides comprehensive music education to nearly 5,000 Berkeley Public elementary and middle school students each year, 100% free of charge.

Over the past 40+ years, Berkeley Symphony has developed a reputation that is as unique and innovative as our hometown. Corporate sponsors gain recognition as partners with one of Berkeley’s anchor cultural institutions. Berkeley Symphony performs music you will hear nowhere else, bringing new meaning to the phrase “only in Berkeley.” As such, we have a very loyal following of subscribers, donors and volunteers. In addition, we are committed to serving the community by conducting a comprehensive Music in the Schools program to all Berkeley public elementary schools. In a longstanding partnership with the University, we also regularly perform as the pit orchestra for Cal Performances. When you support Berkeley Symphony, you support the greater community.
