Sponsorship Opportunities

TThe Knoxville Symphony Orchestra is proud to be the oldest continuously performing orchestra in the Southeast--a vital component of the tapestry that makes Knoxville a wonderfully special and distinctive place in which to live and work.  For more than 75-years live symphonic music has been one of the good things about life in Knoxville. Sponsorship support of the KSO accounts for 10% of our overall budget and 35% of our annual fundraising campaign. Sponsorships can be customized to fit a company’s needs or an individual’s desires to recognize or honor a colleague or loved one.  Sponsorship support of the KSO ensures a solid foundation for our Orchestra into the next 75-years.

Sponsorships are available for a wide range of concerts and programs throughout the KSO season.  Sponsorship packages can be customized to offer you an excellent return on investment at a variety of giving levels.

Marketing and visibility may include some or all of the following:

  • logo on program page for sponsored concert;
  • name/logo on all TV, radio, direct-mail and print advertising for the sponsored concert; 
  • ad in Masterworks program books for sponsored program (distribution 5,000); 
  • logo on KSO Sponsor page in center of Masterworks/POPS/Chamber Classics concert program books for current season and on with a link to your corporate site; 
  • presentation of logo/name on signage in lobby of concert hall during sponsored concert; and introduction and acknowledgement of sponsorship from stage at sponsored concert.

Sponsors also receive:

  • complimentary prime location concert tickets for sponsored concerts; 
  • a 20% discount on tickets for employees for sponsored concerts; 
  • and the possibility of receptions with conductors and/or guest artists (schedule permitting).
