A Sound Gift to the Community
Thank you to the community for support of this wonderful concert!
We look forward to Labor Day weekend in 2023 with your local professional orchestra, and community symphonic chorus!
The Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes will be collecting donations to benefit the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, specifically by providing food donations to the Corning Food Pantry. Please bring non-perishable foods to the event. For more information on what is collected, and what is most needed, see the section below regarding the Corning Food Pantry.

Chalk it up to the Kids
Kids of all ages are invited to participate in a chalk drawing contest! The folks at Nonnie Hood PRC had volunteered to host a chalk drawing in the Ice Rink during the concert. Winners will be selected by the Nonnie Hood staff, and prizes will be distributed. Follow our event on Facebook to stay up to date on information about contest details and prizes!
Fighting Hunger in Our Community
1 in 8 people in our area are at risk of food insecurity, and 1/3 of all requests for food are for children. Hunger is a serious problem—but YOU can help!
The most impactful way to support local hunger-relief efforts is to donate funds. This is because the Food Bank receives reduced cost and surplus commodities, and we are a wholesale food purchaser with the ability to buy in bulk. While one can of soup costs a consumer $1 at the supermarket, the Food Bank can purchase multiple cans of soup with that same $1.
