Message from the President

Dear Members of the Guild,

 

The Guild is a volunteer group of men and women who believe that classical music is extremely important to our community.  We strive to continue being the second largest donor to the Greenville Symphony. Through our volunteer projects and our fundraising events we have raised over $3 million for the GSO since the Guild began in 1958. 

Our 40th Tour of Homes, “A Harvest of Homes,” will be October 5-7, 2018 featuring homes in Parkins Mill East and Hollingworth Park. 

On March 9, 2019 we will present a new winter fundraiser.  Watch for further information on this exciting new event.

The Guild strongly supports the GSO’s educational outreach programs which include the Lollipops Concerts presented by BMW, Once Upon an Orchestra, a collaboration between the South Carolina Children’s Theatre and the GSO, the Children’s Concerts presented by Michelin, and the Middle School Concerts.  These free programs present live orchestral music to 4000 children.

The Guild prepares dinner for the orchestra during the long Masterwork and Chamber double rehearsals.  These are greatly appreciated by the orchestra members.

Concert Previews are always a favorite event where the Maestro presents his insights about the weekend’s program and often guest artists perform.

Guild membership not only helps support great music within our community but also provides an opportunity to meet interesting people and make lasting friendships.  We all believe in the value and cultural importance of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.  We invite you to join us and volunteer your time and talents to our treasure, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.
