Rich in tradition. Innovative in vision. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is widely regarded as one the world's greatest orchestras. Sponsorship of the CSO is one of the most powerful investments that a corporation can make in the world of arts and culture.

Corporate Partnership Opportunities

The strength of any sponsorship opportunity lies in the power of the experience and the passion of the audience. By supporting the CSO and its extraordinary programs, global and local companies enhance their brands, build business relationships, reward employees, strengthen reputations for corporate citizenship and communicate key messages to loyal audiences.


Concerts and Series

The CSO offers an array of experiences—concerts, series, programs and events—that attract dedicated, passionate audiences. The CSO is entering an historic era, with world-renowned conductor Riccardo Muti assuming the podium at a moment when international acclaim for the orchestra reaches an all-time high. Symphony Center is one of the nation's leading venues for all genres of music—classical, jazz, world music and more.


Education and Community

The Negaunee Music Institute at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra reaches more than 200,000 people each year, leading the orchestral world with an incredible portfolio of meaningful music education and community engagement programs. Companies find great value in supporting the important work of the Institute through sponsorship of targeted programs, or through charitable contributions.
