Endow a Musician’s Chair

Endow a Musician’s Chair

Take center stage by endowing a musician’s chair at The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.

Our musicians are among the finest in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond. Support their artistry and share your passion for a particular instrument by endowing a principal chair in your own name or in honor of someone special to you.

All Chair Endowers will:

1. Be listed alongside the name of the musician in concert programs

2. Receive recognition on the Chamber Orchestra’s website

3. Receive a special thank you from the musician who occupies your chair
