Community Impact

The Toledo Symphony (TSO) is the musical heart of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

Now in its 71st Season, the Toledo Symphony reaches more than 260,000 individuals annually through performances and education programs. The series concerts (Classics, Pops, Chamber, Mozart & More, Family Series, and Music Under the Stars) are the critical underpinning of the orchestra’s artistic mission and regularly draw people from more than 40 communities.

The TSO has built a strong reputation nationally for its artistic excellence and community programming. Collaborative projects with community partners are also a hallmark of the TSO’s artistic work. Education programs, student performances, and community concerts are held in schools, neighborhood churches, performing arts centers, and community facilities throughout the region.  Detailed information on our education programs can be found here.

Kobacker Society – Legacy Giving

The Toledo Symphony Kobacker Society was founded two decades ago to honor the legacy of Marvin Kobacker's selfless service to the orchestra over 50 years as a Trustee. The Kobacker Society recognizes and honors donors, like Marvin and his wife Lenore, who make a long-term commitment to sustaining the excellence of the orchestra and Toledo Symphony music education programs through their estate plans.

Membership in the Kobacker Society is open to visionary individuals who make a gift provision of any kind to the Toledo Symphony in their estate plans. Annually, we invite current and prospective Kobacker Society members to gather for a special musical presentation and update on the Toledo Symphony.

If you are planning to make a gift to the Symphony through your estate, please allow us to include your name among the members of the Kobacker Society listed in the program book and thank you personally at a future concert or Kobacker Society event. This form (ADD LINK) can be used to inform us of your gift intentions.

With five different series - presenting selections from classical and chamber music to pops and family entertainment - the Toledo Symphony offers its audiences a diverse and oustanding array of performances, but ticket sales cover only one-third of operating costs.

Your Annual Fund contribution allows the Symphony to bridge the gap between earned income through ticket sales and its operating expenses.

Thank you for considering what the Toledo Symphony means to you and to our community.



For years, the Toledo Symphony has provided uninterrupted musical services for more than 40 communities in northwest Ohio and southwest Michigan.

Uplifting spirits...inspiring dreams...touching hearts...enriching communities...transforming lives.

Much changes in the course of seven decades, but certain constants endure:

  • The transformative power of musical performance
  • The dedication necessary to create art
  • The irreplaceable role played by a committed community in the life of an arts organization
