The gifts we receive from individuals, corporate sponsors and foundation grants give us the resources to continue our work for the people of Wyoming - and for that we thank you.


The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra has one of the finest orchestras in the region with almost 70 musicians. This incredible group of talented artists is carefully selected through an audition process. Their time is not donated - and we feed and house those that travel to Casper.


What better way to participate in our 2023-2024 season than to ensure that every musician feels the love from our patrons this season. Adoption includes your name or company name in the season program.

Music Director Christopher Dragon: $2,500

Concert Master Becky Mothersbaugh: $550

Principal Musician: $275

Orchestra Musician: $125
