Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

The National Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Music Director Christoph Eschenbach, is currently experiencing one of the most thrilling eras in its history. Maestro Eschenbach is one of the world’s leading conductors, and his leadership has generated enormous enthusiasm around the Orchestra, as well as increased its presence both in the local area and throughout the world. This exciting period is an ideal time to partner with the NSO to sponsor one of its many annual programs.

Any partnership with the National Symphony Orchestra will provide many valuable benefits, including:

  • Prominent visibility at the Kennedy Center and throughout the Washington, D.C. area
  • Exclusive networking opportunities at the Kennedy Center’s many annual special events, including the NSO Season Opening Ball, the Kennedy Center Spring Gala, and The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor
  • Extensive recognition in all printed materials and advertisements related to the sponsorship, as applicable
  • Unique hospitality opportunities to reward or entertain employees, clients, and other special guests

An affiliation with the NSO will also present the opportunity to develop a closer connection to a particular project or initiative, and will help further the Orchestra’s mission of providing high-quality classical music to audiences locally, nationally, and internationally.

The NSO's Underwriting Opportunities Booklet outlines a variety of sponsorships for its artistic, family, and educational programming. To request a hard copy of this booklet or a customized sponsorship proposal, please contact us using the information listed below.
