Season 2 Sponsors and Patrons

The second season of Pinnacle Winds features five concerts and is entitled A Season of Symphonies. The cost of giving a single concert is around $30,000. The budget for the year is $120,000. Without the help of patrons and sponsors, Pinnacle Winds will not be able to achieve its mission of becoming the first civilian, full-time professional wind band in America this century. We need your financial assistance and your endorsement of our activity.
