The Process

The Rome Symphony Orchestra wanted a website that reflected their 100 years of exceptional performances as well as their goal of appealing to the musician within everyone.

The team at Romega Digital designed a website with this in mind, emphasizing movement by utilizing animations and large visuals. The symphony partnered with 3 Rivers Photography to capture these images of art in action. These choices mimic the feeling of listening to music without using a backing track.

As the Rome Symphony approaches their centennial season, it is especially important to have a website that effectively expresses all that their talented members offer to the local community and to the arts. Of course, concerts needed a high place in the website. So, Romega created a section where staff can create a concert with photo, date, description, and more, then assign it to a season. Each season list is automatically created so they don’t have to worry about manually building those lists on the front end.

In addition to symphony concerts, their offerings include Concerts and Cocktails, where patrons can socialize with a guest artist; a catered private experience called Gift Boxes; and the annual Young Artist concert featuring talented students. Tickets to these and more events can be purchased on the website, as can season ticket subscriptions or flexible vouchers good for any RSO performance.

As a nonprofit organization, fundraising is always top of mind for the RSO. There’s a page on the website where patrons can become members by donating $50 (Mozart level) to $7,500 (Rachmaninov). Subscribers and donors are also listed by name on the website. Individual or season-long, these donations play a huge role in helping Rome Symphony continue to grow.
