Fundraising Event Cancelled

Unfortunately the 2020 Symphony gala event, our single largest event of the year which raises an average of $115,000 for programming and community outreach, has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

While the event has been cancelled…our mission of bringing music to our community is still alive and vibrant! Donors, Stan and Martha Hanson, have committed $50,000 in lieu of the gala to ensure the Reilly Arts Center and Ocala Symphony Orchestra are able to not only endure through this time, but are poised with active, exciting and engaging programming as soon we are all able to be together again. They have challenged us to use this opportunity to match their gift with donations from other gala attendees who would have joined them on May 15th. Help us exceed that goal so that your Orchestra and your Reilly Arts Center may continue to reverberate music and the performing arts throughout our community!
