Message from the President

Dear Guild Members,

Welcome back as we enjoy live music again for the 2021-2022 season. Last year was a difficult one for both the Guild and the Greenville Symphony Orchestra due to the restraints necessary during the pandemic, which we continue to deal with. Like all non-profit organizations, the Guild and its Board have been working behind the scenes to improve its financial record keeping practices and discussing ways to continue support and fundraising for the GSO.

The Guild will continue to support the GSO in its educational outreach activities, orchestra dinners and special projects as needed. This year our organization will need to reassess our major fundraisers, such as The Tour of Homes, the Gala and The Condo Rondo due to the pandemic. We need everyone who has the ability to be an active member to consider leadership roles if we are to continue as an organization. Creative ideas for fundraising that are easier to manage and fun are most needed. If you are willing to take charge of a new project, you will always have the hands, hearts and support of your fellow Guild members. I urge each of you to talk to new neighbors and friends about Guild membership and the important history of its long association with the GSO and the educational opportunities made possible by our Music Director, Edvard Tchivzhel, our excellent musicians and guest artists.

I know you will all enjoy the new concert season and the performances planned with our Greenville Community in mind as our orchestra prepares for the coming 75th Anniversary!

I deeply appreciate your commitment to and support of the Guild and the Greenville Symphony Orchestra and its mission, to keep live music performance a vibrant part of our community.

See you all in the Concert Hall! 

Debra Strange
Guild President
