Waxahachie Symphony Association
2016 - 2017 Season
We endeavor to bring world-class musicians to Waxahachie and make their performances available to the public at a nominal cost. Our concert season usually consists of 4 or 5 concerts and runs from September to May. This season we are working on providing a season consisting of six concerts.
Since grant funding covers only a small portion of our annual costs, we rely heavily on individual contributions and subscriptions to fund concerts. Our 2016 - 2017 concert season is projected to represent a budget in excess of $52,000. Individual subscriptions and contributions represent our single largest source of operating revenue. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your contributions may be tax-deductible. We appreciate your continued generosity as we bring high caliber classical and jazz performances to Waxahachie and surrounding communities in 2015 - 2016.
