Symphony Society

The Harrisburg Symphony Society is the volunteer auxiliary of the Harrisburg Symphony Association. It was founded in 1989 to help promote the growth and development of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. To fulfill this mission, The Society conducts events that raise both the visibility of the Symphony as well as critical funds. Since its inception, the Society has provided more than one million dollars to directly benefit the Orchestra.

Our Mission:

Fundraising

The Symphony Society works hard raising funds to benefit the Orchestra through a variety of interesting and exciting events. Several signature projects include The Designer Showhouse, Swinging on a Star Gala, and the Symphony Stroll.

Education

Symphony Society volunteers are very active in educational endeavors offered by the Harrisburg Symphony Association.

Volunteers also assist HSO staff to provide special events for subscriber families. Additionally, Society volunteers work behind the scenes at the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra Young Persons’ Concerts and at other educational programs.

Hospitality

Symphony Society volunteers contribute “back-stage” by providing well-earned refreshments to the musicians during rehearsal breaks.

By joining the Harrisburg Symphony Society, you can help support the HSO!
