Baton Society

Become an Insider

Membership in the Baton Society has deepened my relationship with the Symphony. I love the insider experiences and distinctive amenities – from expedited ticket requests to guaranteed parking, to leisurely dinners in the Wattis Room with friends. Even more, I love knowing my gifts make a difference in the mission and future of an institution that has enriched my life so much. - Teri Follett, Baton Society Member
