Legato Circle

Legato: le·ga·to (liˈgä tō’) adj/adv
bound (Italian); smooth and flowing, without breaks between notes

In 1992, the Board of Directors of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra established the Legato Circle to honor individuals who have included a charitable gift to the BSO in their long-term financial plans, securing a legacy of musical excellence. As in a legato musical line, these special designations ensure the smooth transfer of musical values from generation to generation.

Donors join the Legato Circle by letting us know of their bequest or other planned gift intentions. Gift commitments of all levels are welcome and deeply appreciated. Legato Circle donors invest their precious resources in the BSO, giving the gift of music to future generations.
