MISSION The mission of the Friends is to support the Summerville Orchestra through fundraising events, to usher at concerts, and to help with other activities of the Orchestra. ORGANIZATION The Friends has elected officers and a Board of Directors who oversee the activities of the membership and are responsible for the smooth operation of the organization. Members volunteer throughout the year, using their individual talents and capabilities. Meetings are held quarterly and sometimes include guest musicians, enabling members to increase their musical knowledge, get to know the Orchestra musicians and other Friends of the Summerville Orchestra. Membership in the Friends of the Summerville Orchestra does NOT include tickets to any Summerville Orchestra performances.
