The Hot Springs/ Hot Springs Village Symphony Guild

Where fine music is a way of life!

About Us

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.
