Brazosport Symphony Orchestra Virtual Fundraiser

September 9

Save the Date! Brazosport Symphony Orchestra’s 2nd annual online fundraiser, “Downbeat! Start the Music,” is slated for September 9-11, 2021!

 

BSO is thankful for the support of patrons and sponsors who participated in the 2020 “Keep the Music Playing” online event, live concerts and fundraisers in the past (BBQ & Boogie or Coastal Cruisin’), as well as their ongoing support as BSO enters its 39th season performing for the community. BSO was proud to present 3 chamber concerts during the challenging 2020-2021 season and is looking forward to the return of a full orchestra and full season in the fall!

 

BSO’s “Downbeat! Start the Music” virtual fundraiser will feature a silent auction, raffle (top prize is a top hat containing $1000+ in gift cards) and exciting testimonials and musical performances that participants can enjoy from the comfort of their couches. Participants may bid on auction items, vote for their favorite section of the orchestra, and/or sponsor the Conductor and Concertmaster. BSO is also introducing the Christmas Marketplace, where patrons can browse various online boutiques and purchase Christmas gifts for some of your favorite musicians!

 

Raffle tickets are on sale NOW and the BSO is currently accepting sponsorships for both the fundraiser and the 2021-2022 season. Raffle tickets may be purchased from BSO musicians, Board members, members of Brazosport Symphony League or by emailing OneNoteBSO@gmail.com. Click here to view the sponsorship form.

 

BSO is appreciative of the community’s support of the “Downbeat! Start the Music” virtual fundraiser and the upcoming 2021-2022 season, which kicks off October 2. The generosity of BSO patrons and sponsors ensure that this beloved community orchestra will have the necessary funds to continue its work providing cultural, educational and musical activities in the community.

Set Builders

Once it is built, it is time to add detail and color to the set. Set painters of various talent and experience levels can contribute to this fun and satisfying task. Novices can apply basic “base coats” of paint while more accomplished artists can follow behind add the detail (color, texture, shadow and highlight). Bring the set to vibrant life by volunteering as a set painter!
(Minimum hours per week: 4)

Set Builders

During the time a Center Stages play is in production, set builders work on Saturdays (usually 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM) and, occasionally, during some weekdays, as volunteer availability allows. Volunteers should have a background in safe construction practices, including using various types of power tools. Though not necessary, set construction volunteers are encouraged to bring and use their own well-maintained and safe power tools. Wood is usually the most typical construction material, though occasionally other materials, such as metal, are used.
