The women of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra League are a diverse group from a variety of professional and community service backgrounds.  All share a love of music and enthusiasm for helping the Columbus Symphony remain a vibrant part of our community.

Formed in 1981 specifically to raise funds for the CSO, the group has raised approximately $1,300,000 for specific CSO projects and programs including the Endowment of the Principal Harp Chair.

For the last three years the CSOL has sponsored a golf outing at Riviera Golf Club as its principal fundraiser.  This Sunday event included dinner and a variety of programs appealing to non-golfers.  It has been tremendously successful raising funds and attracting friends for the CSO.

CSOL also has sponsored sold-out Café Concerts featuring Symphony musician performances in private homes and in a spectacular estate on the Scioto River in the fall of 2012.  International themes along with member-prepared gourmet food have highlighted these very successful fundraisers.

Other League activities have included informal social gatherings and planning the CSO’s opening night dinners.

Membership requirements
