Who We Are

Friends of OSBA

Our donors are key to helping us uplift and enrich our community. Ticket sales cover only a fraction of the actual costs of our world-class performances. So, each year, we rely on individual donors to help ensure we can continue inspiring our community through classical music and dance. We also rely on generous donors to sponsor our outreach initiatives, including helping us reach, engage and educate the next generation. Our work would not be possible without them!
