Individual Donor Recognition

With tremendous gratitude,

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra gratefully acknowledges the generous individuals listed here who help us continue to enrich and inspire the community through the art of music.  While space only permits us to list pledged gifts made at the Benefactor level and above in the printed program book, we value the generosity and vital support of all donors and have moved all donors from Contributor amount and above to be listed in our digital edition donor roll on  Listings are in recognition of our current donors from January 1, 2022 through April 30, 2023.  Please contact us at [email protected] questions or corrections.
