Review for Bloomington Symphony Orchestra , Bloomington, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra has changed my life. I play with the orchestra, support it financially, serve on the board and promote it every chance I get, because I love this group and am incredibly grateful for the many gifts it gives me. Our Music Director is a constant source of inspiration - he brings a depth of understand and sheer joy for the music that I've never seen anywhere else. He loves Mahler, Tchiakovsky, Beethoven, Ravel...all the greats, and he makes us love them too. I've been involved in other non-profits before, but this is the first one that has reached me in such a profound way. Music has become the single biggest joy in my life, and it's thanks to this orchestra that I can finally acknowledge that.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to pay the Music Director a living wage.
