You can make a real and lasting impact on the orchestra’s annual offerings by renewing and increasing your gift to the Annual Fund. Every Annual Fund gift not only supports our performances in the spectacular Mary W. Sommervold Hall, but also supports our commitment to the community we share

All this is possible only through the ongoing support of orchestra donors like you. Your renewed and increased support ensures that the orchestra will always be one of this community’s enduring institutions. On behalf of everyone who loves and values the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, thank you!
