Participate in The Orchestras Feeding America Program
Help us fill the boxes and feed our community
During the week of February 3 through February 8, the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra (SBSO) is participating in the League of American Orchestra’s “The Orchestras Feeding America” program to help replenish food banks in Saginaw County. We are partnering with Hidden Harvest with a Food or Fund Drive.
When you donate five non-perishable food items or donate $5 and up, the SBSO will give you a Saginaw Art Patrons Card and a Silver Ticket. The Art Card will give you $5 off future concert ticket purchases and the exclusive Silver Ticket- an invitation to a private meet and greet at the Saginaw Art Museum on Monday, February 10. The Studio 23 Artist, Valerie Allen, who will paint as the music inspires her at the SBSO’s February concert, Vivid Colors, Dance, & Beauty on Saturday, February 8 at 8:00 PM at the Temple Theatre, will be the featured guest.
Donations can be dropped off at the Temple Theatre Box Office during normal business hours, Pit and Balcony Theatre, January 24-Feb 11, The Saginaw Art Museum, and at Studio 23 in Bay City, February 6-8.
Orchestras Feeding America was inspired by the film The Soloist, starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr. The movie was based on the true story of the relationship between Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez and Nathaniel Anthony Ayers, a gifted Juilliard-trained string player whose mental illness landed him among the homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. Featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Soloist is a testament to the redemptive power of music and a reminder of our connections to the most vulnerable among us.
