Sponsorship Opportunities

We were thrilled to welcome the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra back to the stage on September 19th to launch
the 2021-2022 season. With the untimely death of our beloved maestro Randall Craig Fleischer in August 2020,
compounded by the financial impact of the pandemic, the past 18 months have been very challenging.
We know that adjusting to change can be difficult. Since its founding in 1926, the Youngstown Symphony
organization has endured many changes. We are confident that, despite the challenges of the past year, we are
on the path to a bright future rooted in history and supported by new-found partnerships. In honor of that history
and in looking forward to the future, we welcome your support as a sponsor of the historic 95 th season of the
Youngstown Symphony Orchestra!

The season will feature a repertoire of eight concerts, both Masterworks and Pops, featuring guest artists and
guest conductors as well as our professional Youngstown Symphony Orchestra musicians. We look forward to
featuring these accomplished musicians on the Ford and Powers stages at the DeYor Performing Arts Center as
well as two select performances on the Concert Hall stage of Stambaugh Auditorium, one featuring the E.M.
Skinner organ.

Philanthropic support from our local businesses is an investment in our community generating cultural and
commercial dividends which help to drive the growth of our region. Your support will make a difference by
elevating the quality of life in our area and will help to keep ticket prices accessible for the general public.

A list of sponsorship opportunities is attached.  Each level of sponsorship comes with unique benefits including
various highly-visible recognition opportunities at each event and throughout the upcoming season,
complimentary tickets, advertising, and invitations to exclusive VIP events and “meet and greets” with the artists.

Partnering with the Youngstown Symphony will provide your business with the opportunity to:

  • Increase brand awareness through program advertising (the program books will be distributed to an
    estimated 8,000 patrons this season), as well as event signage, web and social media presence.
  • Receive complimentary tickets to performances and invitations to exclusive events.
  • Entertain clients, reward employees and network with other sponsors.
  • Enjoy access to “meet and greet” events with Youngstown Symphony musicians and guest artists


Additionally, we would be happy to customize a strategic partnership package to meet your company’s unique
goals and marketing objectives. All sponsorships provide meaningful and measurable benefits. If you have any
questions or need additional information, please contact me at fundraising@youngstownsymphony.com or by
calling 330-747-5175.

Thank you in advance for your support of the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra 2021 – 2022 season.  We look
forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming performances.

Most sincerely,

JoAnn Stock, Chief Development Officer
Youngstown Symphony Society and Stambaugh Auditorium
