Operating Budget

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 1/3 of that income is earned through tickets sales. The remainder is 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.
