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".
The Guild has established the Hot Springs/ Hot Springs Village Symphony Guild Endowment for Music Education with the Arkansas Community Foundation, Inc.
