Legacy Program

Become a visionary by being a part of the Legacy Program of the North Mississippi Symphony Orchestra. The Tupelo Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1971 by Wade H. Lagrone, who had the vision of the impact of music on our community. The idea of a professional symphony orchestra survivng in a town of 35,000 people for over 40 years is simply incredible. But the orchestra has not only survived, it has flourished and gained in performance excellence until having the honor of being known as the best symphony in the state of Mississippi.

Free, educational, children's concerts have been presented in Tupelo for over 30 years. In addition, NMSO has partnered with Mississippi Arts Commission and Carnegie Hall in New York in developing an outreach program that serves the entire region of North Mississippi. Students in the surrounding towns are treated to special children's concerts.

To perpetuate the life of this amazing orchestra, we have establised a Legacy Program. You now have the opportunity to give a gift that will live on through this great organization. With your gifts, bequests, honorariums, memorials and other monetary means, you may become part of a legacy that guarantees the future of our amazing orchestra and the education of our young people.

Begin by calling the Symphony Office at 662.842.8433, and ask for Margaret Anne Murphey. She will make an appointment with you and guide you through the many ways that you may make a lasting gift to NMSO.
