We welcome your partnership in the Friends of the Symphony, since 2014 an all-inclusive outgrowth of the former Fort Collins Symphony Guild.

In 1963 when the Symphony Guild held its first meeting, no one could have predicted the remarkable success of a small group of persons committed to insuring symphonic music in the Fort Collins community. Fifty years later and over a million dollars donated in support of the symphony, we turn our focus toward the next fifty years with a new name and broadened engagement.

We hope that you will be as eager as we are to be a part of this new organization, one whose doors are open to all who share a commitment to strengthen the Symphony and its outreach, offering a valuable opportunity to advance a culture of arts in our community for the benefit of persons of all ages and musical interests.

The Friends aim to raise music appreciation through continued education and a greater public exposure to the Symphony and its works, and to foster friendships and shared experiences among those who love music.

It’s all about the Music!
