The Aiken Symphony Guild was founded in 1986 to bring exceptional music to our community. We do this through our partnership with Symphony Orchestra Augusta. The Guild is responsible for seeking Sponsors and conducting Special Events that raise funds for the Guild’s music programs for students and the SOA in Aiken concert series. The Guild’s student programs include the Youth Concert Series for all fifth grade students in Aiken and Edgefield counties and the Concerto Competition for students eighteen years of age and younger. To date, more than 35,500 fifth graders have attended these concerts. In addition, advertising in the SOA in Aiken concert Program is a project of Aiken Symphony Guild in support of Symphony Orchestra Augusta.
The Guild is an all volunteer organization. Generous contributions by individuals, corporate sponsors, advertising by local businesses in the concert program, and grant awards happen because of the efforts of Guild members, passionate about bringing great music to Aiken. We thank our sponsors, program advertisers, donors, members, and all who attend SOA in Aiken concerts. The Aiken Symphony Guild is a 501(C)3 corporation.
