Friends of the Symphony

Become a Friend of the Symphony!
The Friends of the Symphony (formerly The Symphony Guild) has been in existence for more than 50 years! This social and fundraising auxiliary group is comprised of men and women from St. Joseph and surrounding communities who are passionate about supporting the arts and their communities. The “Friends” has an ever expanding membership of dynamic people who have monthly meetings, fundraisers and eagerly plan entertaining events that promote and support the Saint Joseph Symphony.

Members have the opportunity not only to work and learn in a variety of behind-the-scenes environments, but also to meet others who share their love of music.

If you’d like to join the Friends of the Symphony, please contact the Symphony office at 816-233-7701. No membership dues are required.
