“I see the WSO becoming the orchestra of WY, not only a central part of Casper but a central part of the state of Wyoming.”
-Christopher Dragon,
Music Director
For more than 70 years, the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra has been entertaining audiences from venues large and small - from concert halls to classrooms across Wyoming. None of this would be possible without the unprecedented support from people like you. 
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.


Annual gifts from individual donors is what sustains the WSO each year. Donations, both large and small, allow for:

  • World Renowned Guest Performances

  • Community Enrichment through Music on the Move

  • Community Partnerships

  • Artist Development

  • Planning for the Future

Please consider a gift today in support of the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Annual gifts can be made in a single payment or split out into monthly gifts that sustain the organization for the future.



The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra has one of the finest orchestra in the region with almost 70 musicians who come to Casper to perform. 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 2020-2021 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

To adopt your favorite musician contact the WSO Office to discuss availability.



Supporting the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Endowment is one of the easiest ways to ensure the longterm success of the Orchestra. These gifts provide lasting support for the organization by growing the corpus of the WSO Endowment and provides continuous support in perpetuity.

Naming the WSO Endowment as a beneficiary in your will or trust is a simple way to support the Orchestra into the future. Bequests can be made for a certain dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. If you are interested in making a bequest to the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, contact WSO Executive Director Rachel Bailey and discuss your plans with your attorney, financial advisor or CPA.




Corporate sponsorships are are vitally important to the WSO's continued efforts to reach a wider audience and offer quality education opportunities to Wyoming's school children.

Partnering with the WSO allows your organization to increase its exposure to an audience dedicated to the arts and creating a culture of

community in Wyoming.

We offer a wide variety of partnership opportunities, including concert sponsorships, event sponsorships, in-kind donations and educational programming sponsorships.
