MUSICAL NOTES are electronic video "telegrams" performed by Olympia Symphony musicians. They are a fresh and fun way to celebrate a friend or family member's special day while supporting your local arts community!

A Musical Note includes a personalized introduction slide with your name and your recipient's name, followed by the musical performance you have selected. For an additional fee we will include a recorded audio message, written by you and recorded by an OSO staff member. You and your loved one will each receive a private, customized link to your video. Your unlisted video will not be publicly searchable, but you are free to share it with whomever you wish.

Our Musical Note menu has selections suitable for holidays such as Father's Day and Independence Day, as well as music perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduation, thank you's, sympathy, new babies, or "just because." Be sure to check back often to see new musical selections recorded by our fabulous musicians!
