The Symphony Guild of Charlotte, Inc. recently received an award from the Association of Major Symphony Orchestra Volunteers. The organization, which is comprised of 23 orchestra groups throughout the nation, ensures the continued existence of major symphony orchestras in North America through volunteerism.

The Guild has also been recognized numerous times by the League of American Orchestras, the only national organization dedicated solely to the orchestral experience. The League, which is comprised of over 800 orchestras across the country, is a nexus of knowledge and innovation, advocacy, and leadership advancement for managers, musicians, volunteers, and boards.

We are proud to share our award-winning history of recognition for our many programs.
