Support Your Symphony

"I have been a supporter of the MSO since its inception, working with the Symphony League and attending nearly every performance. Our outstanding symphony is a major asset to Meridian and has provided so many of us the pleasure of concerts equal to those found in large cities. How fortunate we are!"

-Alice James
