Since its inception in 1956, the Springfield Symphony Guild has been a vital contributor to the Springfield Symphony's success. The mission of the Guild is to raise funds for the Springfield Symphony, to encourage a strong commitment to musical education, and to promote the appreciation of symphonic music. Through the Guild's many projects and the work of its many volunteers, it has provided major funding for the Symphony. In fact, the Guild has contributed more than half-a million dollars to the Symphony's budget, with an annual pledge of $10,000. In addition, the Guild helps bring musical opportunities to the youth of Southwest Missouri through its support of scholarship programs, music camp for high school students, and Young People's Concerts for area fourth grade students.

Membership in the Guild means being an important part of music making in our community, while working with a diverse group of people who share a common goal. If you are interested in contributing the Symphony's future and supporting education and outreach to area children through the Guild, contact the Guild's Vice President of membership, Patricia Cox at
