Topeka Symphony League

Welcome to the Symphony League website!

The Topeka Symphony League’s mission is to support the Topeka Symphony Board, the Orchestra and three Youth Ensembles through fundraising, education programs, and development.

Topeka Symphony League members are motivated to help maintain the Topeka Symphony and Youth Ensembles-to ensure that each continues to thrive in northeast Kansas.
Topeka Symphony League volunteers help usher at concerts, assist with pre-and post-concert events, assist with youth ensemble events, and assist during symphony fundraising events. Monetary contributions and volunteer assistance are key to the Topeka Symphony League.
The League extends a warm welcome to all who choose to become members!

To date there are over one hundred members of the Topeka Symphony League and twenty-two members of the Topeka Symphony League Board.

The League’s year begins with a Welcome Supper when the orchestra returns for their first rehearsal. It is chaired and hosted by League members.

Plans are underway for the 30th Annual Gala. The gala will be Friday, February 1, 2019 at the Maner Conference Center, Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka. Save the date!

The Topeka Symphony League is organized exclusively for charitable and education purposes under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

If you would like to be the face of making a difference in the Topeka and area community come join our dynamic Topeka Symphony League.
