Friends Of The Symphony

Volunteer With Us!

Being a Friend of The Symphony brings you up close and personal with classical music, orchestra musicians, and the community members whose lives we touch.  By getting involved, you can change the lives of hundreds of thousand with the power of music.  By being involved, you change your life.

 

The Friends of the Meridian Symphony include hundreds of volunteers who give thousands of hours of talent, expertise, and good old fashioned manpower making the quality productions and activities the MSA offers to our community possible.  Friends volunteers have the opportunity to work and learn in a variety of different behind-the-scene environments, from working alongside staff in the concert hall, to working with students in music education programs in the schools, to raising hundreds of thousands of dollars at special benefit events. We have an opportunity for you! You also have the chance to meet other people along the way who share your love of symphonic music and your desire to make a difference in the Meridian community.
