On the Road to Orchestra Hall

On the Road to Orchestra Hall

Help the Minnesota Orchestra expand busing support for schools attending Young People’s Concerts

It’s hard to believe that the cost of a bus is the biggest barrier for schools in bringing students to Orchestra Hall for a Minnesota Orchestra concert, but it’s true. We want to solve this problem so that more students can experience the joy and excitement of live symphonic music through our Young People’s Concerts this year.

Let’s get the buses moving!

The Minnesota Orchestra is expanding its Bus Subsidy Program by 40% this season to make $50,000 available to provide transportation funding to schools that need support. To accomplish this, we need your help!

To inspire your support today, Orchestra donors Gerald and Patrice Halbach will match the first $10,000 contributed to help fund this critical program. Give online today and you can turn one bus into TWO!

Let’s eliminate this barrier! Here is how your gift can work:

“Without busing support our children would not be able to attend Young People’s Concerts. Thank you to all who help bring music into our children’s lives, it feeds their souls. One student commented that she has learned another way to be happy.”
