Dear Members of the Colorado Symphony Guild,

Seasons mark change.  The new Colorado Symphony season has arrived!

 And there is a group of people, very special people, who understand what this means better than most: the Colorado Symphony Guild.

They know the joy ahead.  From Chopin, Beethoven, and Brahms, to Bocelli, DeVotchKa, and Elf.  Peter Oundjian, Marin Alsop, Markus Stenz.  Etta James, Martin Luther King, Jr., Cleo Parker Robinson.  The Chorus.  The Young Artists.  The Education Programs.

Emerging from a COVID-ravaged prior season, they understand the challenges to come.  And they’re ready. 

These special people know that this season represents new beginnings.  New resources, new programs, new faces, and new ideas that will come together to elevate the Symphony to new heights.  As the music soars, they know that our community also rises.

We, the undersigned members of the Executive Committee and senior staff of the Colorado Symphony, see you, and sincerely thank you.

 Who are these people?  They are you.  And you.  And you and you and you.  

You call yourselves the Colorado Symphony Guild.

We salute you!

According to our Articles of Incorporation the Colorado Symphony Guild was organized to "support the symphony the Symphony monetarily and with in-kind services; to foster and encourage musical appreciation, knowledge and participation of the membership and public." We have done so for the past eighty-eight (88) years.

Our all volunteer organization's Colorado Gives Day fundraising goal is $10,000.

Our organization of 115 men and women is proud to support The Colorado Symphony through fundraising activities, supporting and sponsoring music programs and seminars for adults, donating funds for the purchase of music scores for the orchestra, and by volunteering in support capacities for the Colorado Symphony and Symphony Administration.

We are especially proud of our financial support for the Symphony Kids Concerts which bring the joy of classical music to school children throughout the Denver-Metro area.

Background Statement

The Colorado Symphony Guild, Inc. was born in 1935. At that time, there were three orchestras in the Mile High City. Our organization would serve as a helpmate, not only in fundraising but as nurturer of an image of great music presentation and creation of future audiences from the youth of the city. Through the years the Guild sponsored various campaigns for support of the Symphony.

In addition to its fundraising activities, the Guild is now contributing via its Golden Circle memorial and honorary gifts program for the purchase of new music, music folders and additional supplies for the symphony and additional materials to assist with distributing music scores.
