Education Sponsors

Education Sponsors

Education continues to be central to the orchestra’s mission, made possible through generous annual donations and significant investment from the BPO. The BPO invests almost $1.2 million annually in its education programs, with income from tickets and grants covering only half the expenses. The BPO extends our deepest gratitude to the corporations, foundations and individuals that help make our award-winning education and outreach programs possible.
