What is the Women's Committee:
The Women's Committee is an affiliate organization of the Grand Rapids Symphony Society. We support the growth of the Grand Rapids Symphony through a variety of service and fundraising events while strengthening community awareness and appreciation of quality music.
Who are the Women’s Committee:
We began in 1941 as a group of women passionate about music, music education and the power of symphonic music to change lives. We recently voted to further diversify the organization by accepting male members. Many men have volunteered to support various events in the past, and a number of them expressed interest in becoming members. We believe they will be key contributors to furthering the success of the organization and helping take it to the next level in terms of Symphony support. Families and friends who join our committee can volunteer with their children at many of our exciting events. This demonstrates and teaches our youth the importance of community stewardship, and nurtures generational support for the Grand Rapids Symphony ensuring it a long and robust life in our community.
