Portia Sonnenfeld Society

Portia Sonnenfeld established the Little Orchestra of Princeton in 1980 with the help of an impressive and visionary group of leaders including Ed Cone and Frank Taplin. Portia’s dedication and creativity in presenting classical music lives on through the Portia Sonnenfeld Legacy Society, which ensures that the Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) will continue to thrive for generations to come.

A legacy gift is the perfect way to express appreciation for the PSO’s performances and programs. There are many estate-planning opportunities that provide the personal satisfaction of creating a musical legacy while securing potential income tax advantages. These gifts help us maintain our financial stability, grow artistically, and expand our education and community engagement programs.
