The South Guild was developed to act as a fundraising and support group for the Brevard Symphony Orchestra. The mission of the Guild is to promote, sustain and assist the BSO. This is accomplished through member and community involvement in fundraising activities designed to highlight both the organization and the orchestra. With approximately 180 members, the Guild is committed to increasing public awareness of the orchestra’s activities, the quality of its performances, and the service it renders the community. Membership is open year-round to those interested in actively supporting the BSO. The Guild’s activities are focused on these major areas:
The South Guild contributes a substantial portion of the orchestra’s annual operating budget, through a variety of fundraising projects throughout the year. They also furnish essential personnel for major fundraisers undertaken by the Board of Directors.
The Guild plays a major role in the annual season ticket campaign.
Guild volunteers provide auxiliary staffing for the BSO office, as well as furnishing task forces for special short-term projects.
The Guild shares responsibility for providing refreshments for orchestra rehearsals, and for hosting receptions for musicians and audiences.
All Guild members are obligated to devote time, talent and/or financial support to Guild activities and are encouraged to become season subscribers. New members are accepted at any time.
