The Reading Symphony Orchestra and local businesses & corporations enjoy a fulfilling complementary relationship. The RSO standards of artistic excellence serve our residents, but also attract high-quality employees and businesses to our community.

Corporations and businesses have the opportunity to support the RSO through various sponsor levels and types, including but not limited to Season, Concert, Soloist, and Youth & Education sponsorships.

The RSO will tailor the sponsorship to meet the needs and expectations of the company, business, or organization. Sponsors’ benefits can include generous ticket packages, multi-pronged marketing opportunities, and employee ticket discounts amongst other opportunities that suit their needs.

“It is hard to measure the value of the Reading Symphony Orchestra and the importance that it has in our Berks County Community. It is rare that a community of our size can be blessed to have such high quality talent and performances. It makes one even more proud to be part of this encredible community that we call Berks County.”
– Chris Kraras, White Star Tours
