Sponsorship Opportunities

ECSO’s income is not fully supported by earned revenue from concert sales, much like many other performing arts organizations. We rely upon the contributed income from corporate sponsors, the ECSO Friends, individual donors, and community foundations and grants to assist in carrying out our mission in the eastern Connecticut region.

Corporate Sponsorships

The ECSO offers a wide range of customizable sponsorship packages that include concerts, series, educational programs, and events. These partnerships provide businesses with brand opportunities and unique exposure to our diverse and loyal audience.
