Gypsy Caravan

Over the 45-year history of Gypsy Caravan, the Symphony Volunteer Association (SVA) has raised more than $4 million in support of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and its mission: enriching lives through the power of music. The revenue raised has helped to fund many community and education programs.
As a vendor, you have contributed to making this tradition successful year after year. Some of you have been loyal supporters for many years, some for over 30 years. We greatly appreciate your loyalty.

In recent years, we have struggled to sustain Gypsy Caravan faced with continued shopper and revenue decline and increased efforts needed to produce the event. You have no doubt observed this phenomenon. After much consideration and analysis, we have decided to retire Gypsy Caravan.

Our SLSO continues to be one of the top orchestras in the nation, and we are so fortunate to have a broad base of support from our community. We thank you for your support over the years by being one of our valued vendors. We wish you success in your work and hope that you will take advantage of the many wonderful concerts and special programs presented each year.
