Join the Guild

Membership in the Guild is a wonderful way to spend time with friends while helping the Philharmonic. Guild members meet nine times each year between September and May to enjoy performances by local musical talent in beautiful homes of members, share news of upcoming concerts, fellowship, and a light meal. Guild volunteers coordinate school student seating for the Philharmonic Discover Music Series concerts. The Guild hosts the Philharmonic Ball, its major annual fundraiser. Seventh-grade students whose parents are members have the first opportunity to join the Belles and Beaus program. Belles and Beaus serve as ushers for Philharmonic concerts. This five-year service program is recognized by the Texas Governor and can be valuable for college entrance applications.

Artistic and Office Assistance

Volunteers enjoy being behind the scenes with guest artists and musicians, helping with transportation, auditions, and concert and special event logistics.


Interns can support every aspect of the Philharmonic’s operations. Call the Philharmonic office to see how you might gain valuable experience.

House a Musician

Abilene hosts open their homes on concert weekends for musicians who come from out of town. These hosts allow us to recruit fine players while lowering production costs.
