17-18 Chair Sponsorships: Principal

Chair sponsors are a very special group of supporters with a unique connection to the orchestra. Chair sponsorships are important fiscally; they also are particularly significant to our musicians. Whether local to Yakima or commuting from other cities, our musicians very much appreciate the warmth of community support that they experience through their work with the YSO. Having named sponsors for each chair represents a personal connection and commitment that brings our orchestra and community together in a much more meaningful way.
