Symphony Volunteer Association

Volunteer to support the orchestra and music you love! Through unique education programs, fundraising projects, and more, SVA members support the St. Louis Symphony with an annual gift of $75 or more and reach thousands of students each season.


Volunteer Opportunities

  • Play a special part in Picture the Music, Express the Music, and Instrument Playground, a traveling hands-on kit of musical instruments presented at schools and other community venues.
  • Support Parties of Note, a series of special events to benefit the STL Symphony, and Gypsy Caravan, one of the Midwest’s largest antique, craft and flea markets, held each Memorial Day.
  • Serve as a Powell Hall tour guide, assist with Youth Orchestra auditions, or complete “one and done” projects, providing much appreciated help to STL Symphony staff. Contact us for a wide variety of opportunities available to match your interests and schedule.
