Plano Symphony Guild

What is the Plano Symphony Guild?

The Guild is the Plano Symphony Orchestra Association’s volunteer support organization. Guild members assist with a wide range of activities. The women and men of the Plano Symphony Guild support the symphony in its commitment to cultural enrichment and the development of musical programs for children and adults.  Volunteering through Guild activities provides a direct way to learn about and positively impact the cultural arts environment in Plano and surrounding communities.  The Guild is an excellent way for newcomers to become connected to the community and for long-time residents to expand their circle of friends.
