Production costs for each classical concert range from $25,000 to $35,000. The Symphony’s budget for the 2017-2018 season was $263,000. Approximately 1/4 of that income is earned through tickets sales. During the abbreviated 2019-2020 season, only 8% of our income was from ticket sales. The remainder was provided through the generosity of Mid-Columbia businesses and individuals, with additional support from Pacific Northwest grant organizations. In addition, many thousands of dollars are saved through donations of labor, services, and items. Thank You to all our generous donors!
