The Guild is the highly dedicated support group and fund-raising branch of the symphony; it has been a (large, active!) auxiliary of the Symphony Association since 1963. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in the Livermore-Amador Symphony and to provide financial support. Membership is open to all who share this goal.
The Guild meets four times a year (and its board meets about ten times a year); each meeting includes music and food in addition to a short business meeting. The first meeting of the 2016–2017 season was a prelude party, with a program by Valley Dance Theatre, on September 22, 2016; the winter meeting was on January 19, 2017. Next meetings will be on April 20 and May 25, 2017.
The Guild’s activities are varied; for example, the Guild handles the annual season-ticket campaign of the Symphony, presents pops concerts, publishes a newsletter, organizes estate sales, and provides refreshments at the Association’s annual general meeting.
