The Aiken Symphony Guild was founded in 1986 to bring exceptional music to our community. We do this through our partnership with Aiken Symphony Orchestra (ASO). The Guild is responsible for seeking Sponsors and conducting special events that raise funds for the Guild’s music programs for students and the ASO concert series. The Guild’s student programs include the Youth Concert Series for all fifth grade students in Aiken and Edgefield counties and the Concerto Competition for students eighteen years of age and younger. To date, more than 35,500 fifth graders have attended these concerts. In addition, advertising in the ASO concert Program is a project of Aiken Symphony Guild in support of Aiken Symphony Orchestra.
