What are Named Chairs?
Many orchestras offer supporters the opportunity to endow principal chairs with their names, which then appear after the principal player's name in all programs and the online roster. As a token of appreciation and recognition for the continued support of our wonderful alumni, we will pilot our own program of endowed chairs in the 2016 - 17 season. To make it more DPops, for the minimum donation of $60 for one year or $100 for two years, alumni may endow any chair with any name (the wackier the better)! Your creativity and generosity will be honored in the orchestra roster on our website, as well as in our concert programs.
