Welcome to new members! Enjoy the company of interesting and talented people who share your passion for the Albany Symphony Orchestra and actively work to support it.

Both leaders and workers are needed for Vanguard activities, which can vary from one-time events to longer engagements.  Here is a sample:


Help with music education
  • Tiny Tots Concerts
  • Sunday Symphonies (Family Concerts)
  • Collect donated instruments for area schoolchildren


Support the Symphony
  • Serve refreshments to orchestra members at concerts and recording sessions
  • Offer lodging to out-of-town orchestra players
  • Provide local transportation to guest composers and soloists
  • Greet concertgoers at performances, help them with tickets, or usher at concerts
  • Contribute your time and talent to organizing or running fund-raisers like the annual Golf Tournament
Enjoy parties and social events at area restaurants and in gracious homes
  • Start the season with Tea & Symphony at a wonderful house
  • Plan a fashion show and luncheon
  • Plan a day trip to one of the region's outstanding attractions and restaurants
These are our most frequent types of activities and projects.  We are open to trying new ideas, and we welcome new people enthusiastically.  Give us a try!
