The Red Sash

Have you ever wondered what the red sashes tied around some of our orchestra musicians’ chairs are all about?

Help Paint The Orchestra RED!

Each red sash represents the support of a patron in the audience… perhaps someone sitting right next to you at a concert!

A Musician Chair Sponsorship offers you the satisfaction of knowing you play a vital role in creating the quality performances we present to you, concert after concert. Approximately 25% of the FSO’s total budget pays for our musicians to perform each season.

You too can help the FSO attract and retain the best musicians, ensuring the Firelands Symphony Orchestra’s continued artistic growth!
