Support Classical Music in Gainesville by supporting Gainesville’s professional orchestra. The Gainesville Orchestra’s mission to entertain, enrich and educate a diverse and broad-based audience through the presentation of quality programs in traditional and contemporary repertoire is as pertinent today as it was in our first season, 30 years ago. Music nourishes our souls, comforts our spirits and provides unique opportunities for us to come together. With your vigorous support Gainesville’s only professional orchestra can continue to thrive. There are many ways to support The Gainesville Orchestra. You can decide what method is best for you.
