Heritage Society

The MSO’s commitment to artistic excellence is well-known, but such a commitment depends on the generosity of community-minded individuals who gladly shoulder the responsibility of promoting, preserving, and supporting the arts. In recognition of those patrons who demonstrate this kind of strong personal commitment to the MSO’s artistic, educational and outreach goals, the Maryland Symphony Orchestra has created the Heritage Society.

Members of the Heritage Society have made a special gift to the MSO through their estate plans, realizing that careful planning today can reap wonderful rewards tomorrow. They have the satisfaction of knowing that their own interests and wishes have helped to shape the MSO’s future, and that tomorrow’s audiences will benefit from today’s generosity. We invite you to consider including a provision for the Maryland Symphony Orchestra in your estate plans, and becoming a member of the Heritage Society.
