Wish List

Underwriting specific items such as music for the library of the Symphony or the youth orchestras or helping us to purchase instruments for both orchestras is a special way to see your donation at work!  You will also receive recognition for music purchase in the program book on the page with the program notes as well as our heartfelt thanks!


Special thanks to those individuals who have given the gifts to purchase music for the coming season as well as helping us to purchase equipment that will be put to good use without HSO having to borrow for performances!



Please consider purchasing something for our permanent library.  

Sincere thanks to those “angels” who have helped to build the Holland Symphony library for use by all of its orchestras!

Special thanks to Holland AAUW (American Association of University Women) for the 2017 grant of $1040 for music for the HSO Community Concert at Kollen Park (South of the Border with its Hispanic emphasis) and the Holland Area Junior Strings Library.  This is an important gift for the purchase of Hispanic/Latin scores for the free community concert and fresh offerings for our youth.
