Become a DSO Sponsor

The DuPage Symphony Orchestra is pleased to offer sponsorship opportunities for all of our 62nd Anniversary Season performances, including season and by-concert sponsorship. Inclusion in marketing materials is comprehensive from the receipt of sponsorship funding; however due to publication deadlines, only the marketing collateral created after sponsorship commitment can be offered.  Accordingly, the sooner your participation begins the more exposure you will receive.  Marketing collateral may include:  


  • Recognition in the DuPage Symphony Orchestra season brochure, our primary marketing piece for the season, including a downloadable .pdf version on our website (www.dupagesymphony.org)

  • Inclusion in all online and print marketing, including targeted emails to patrons, press releases, flyers, individual concert posters for your sponsored event(s), and business link/logo on our website.

  • On-site signage at your sponsored performance(s).  Unless otherwise noted, performances take place at Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville.

  • Continued encouragement to the orchestra members and our patrons to support those businesses that support the DSO.

  • Complimentary tickets to your selected concert(s).

  • Plaque for your business showing support of the DuPage Symphony Orchestra.
