Our musicians make history every day, and not just with music.
Did you know that Karl Vilcins, bassoon, is a carpenter in his spare time? That Herb Smith is the familiar face for the kids at Camp Good Days? Or a group of RPO musicians are training for a triathlon? We are proud to announce our BEYOND THE STAGE $300,000 matching gift challenge! Every dollar donated to the RPO through our season end on June 30th will be matched $1 for $1 up to $300,000!
Get to know more more about our musicians, revealing little-known interests, hidden passions, and exciting side projects. We are so much more than just musicians – we are parents, educators, pet lovers, and Wegmans devotees. Your support is vital to keeping the music playing. Ticket sales cover only 40% of our production and operating costs, with the remaining 60% supported by the generosity of people like you. By making a gift to the RPO, you are investing back into your community.
