Friends of the Orlando Philharmonic

20/20 Vision Campaign - Friends Bar Challenge

The Friends committed in 2014 to raise $100,000 by the end of the 2016-2017 fiscal year to acquire the naming rights of the Plaza Live lobby bar in support of the Plaza Live renovations. As of June 30, 2017 you have not only raised the pledged amount but EXCEEDED it by almost $6,000.

Thank-you so much for your support.

Although the Friends Bar campaing is "officially" closed you can still help the Philharmonic complete the renovations to the Plaza Live theater by contributing to their capital campaign.
