The Hot Springs/ Hot Springs Village Symphony Guild

Where fine music is a way of life!

  • Welcome

COVID-19 Update

In response to the on-going corona virus situation, we have cancelled the live recital by the Henderson State University President's Music Award winners scheduled January 23, 2021. Watch for information on how to experience this concert virtually. The Hot Springs Village Community Foundation has also rescheduled the Boys of D63 for October 19, 2021. If you have tickets for this concert and can attend on October 19, no action is required. If you are are uncertain of your availability, contact the HSVCF at about your options. 

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra has cancelled the 2020 - 2021 Pops season, rescheduled the 2020 - 2021 Masterworks concerts for the 2021 - 2022 season, and delayed the search for a new Music Director. The ASO will present a different set of Masterworks concerts in the first half of 2021 as conditions permit. Their most recent subscriber letter (mailed just before Christmas) indicates:

  • the January 16/17 concert has been rescheduled for May because the program requires a larger orchestra;
  • the January 30/31 concert will be a virtual only event. The concert will be recorded in high definition audio and video and will be available to stream during the regular concert times on Saturday and Sunday. The link to view the stream will be sent to all subscribers.
  • the remaining concerts will be hybrid in-person and virtual presentations. Closer to the February concert date, the ASO will contact subscribers to select new seats from an adjusted seat map. You will receive digital tickets that you can show at the performance on your smart phone or you may print them. If you cannot use digital tickets, the box office staff will be prepared to assist you at the hall.
We have surveyed our bus patrons to determine if we should attempt to provide bus service to the Sunday Masterworks concerts this Spring. Most of our regular riders are planning to attend the concerts virtually, therefore we will suspend our bus service until the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra is allowed to resume regular live performances.


Welcome to the Hot Springs/Hot Springs Village (HS/HSV) Symphony Guild.  Incorporated in 1986, our Guild has grown to be one of the largest Guilds in the nation.  Although it offers its membership entertainment programs, it is primarily a philanthropic organization - providing support for the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and promoting music education in schools located in Garland County and helping students master their craft.  The Guild is undeniably the largest philanthropic organization focused specifically on promoting music education in our local schools.

The Guild's three-pronged Mission is a critical factor in retaining and attracting members and garnering financial support.  Our members are not only interested in good programming, but are keenly interested in advancing music education, a critical component of the academic curriculum.  As a member, you have advance purchase opportunities for our events and a variety of volunteer opportunities furthering music education.

The Hot Springs/Hot Springs Village Symphony guild is a member of the Hot Springs Village Arts Council.

Become a member or make a donation

Your tax deductible membership in or donation to the Guild will help support our Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and the Guild's educational mission which is to promote music education in the schools and to help students master their craft.

We raise funds through our dues and special events to create opportunities for children in the greater Hot Springs area to have music in their lives.  While achievement is important, we feel that all children should feel the joy of hearing live music and learning to sing or play an instrument.  Joy sparks the imagination and allows them to become more creative in all aspects of their lives.

We have several programs that address the need in different ways:  Scholarships for future music educators as they enter college, the annual Children's Concert at the Bank of the Ozarks Arena in Hot Springs, scholarships for area students to summer music camps, grants for essential equipment to area schools, as well as supporting our Arts Partners program "Orchestra and You".
