What more could you ask for in a benefit?

The Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale participate in more than 100 free education and outreach programs each year! Not only do we serve the above-mentioned areas, we also do so much more!

Musicians in the Schools, Adventure in Music Days (AiM Day),  Master Classes, and our Rural Rhythms, programs are just a few ways the Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale are using the power of music to inspire and teach our community, students, and music lovers throughout Southeastern Montana and Northeastern Wyoming.

We believe in the power of music. Music heals. Music soothes. Music teaches. Music inspires.

Help us share the music by supporting The Who Cares Symphony Benefit.
