Did you know?
The Washington Idaho Symphony is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Ticket sales only cover 20-25% of our operating costs. Which means we rely on your support to continue to bring quality live performances to the Quad Cities area! We've accomplished so much already this season, including bringing on our new Executive Director and Music Director, partnering again with the Palouse Choral Society, and bringing musical performances to the Lewiston Downtown Art Walk. We've got much more planned for whats looking like a bright future! But we'll need your help to get us there.
