Topeka Symphony League


Welcome to the Symphony League!

We are the ancillary arm of the Topeka Symphony Society, and eagerly support the programs of the Topeka Symphony, Youth Ensembles and Endowment through monetary contributions and volunteer activities.

League members have opportunities to assist with concert receptions and dinners, serve as ushers and greeters at concerts and help with various activities of the Youth Ensembles.

Plans are underway for the Symphony League’s 33rd major fundraiser, an in-person Gala on Friday, February 25th, 2022. Check the Annual Fundraiser link periodically to view updated details as we get closer to that date! I hope you will mark your calendar and join us for a lively evening to benefit our orchestra and youth ensembles.

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

We encourage and welcome new members to the Symphony League and deeply appreciate the continued support of our renewing members. Information is available on this website.

The Symphony League looks forward to another year of enjoying live music together!

From the Membership Chair:

Dear Symphony League Members,

As we continue working through the challenges brought by the coronavirus pandemic, we want to remember how much we need the Symphony League to stay strong for the years to come.

There are challenges still ahead, and the Symphony League is committed to moving forward safely and thoughtfully. Between now and when we next can experience a Topeka Symphony concert, we will continue to be ready with our support. We will collaborate with the orchestra and Youth Ensembles to make informed decisions.

Download our membership brochure — you can print and mail or you can join below on-line. If you wish to volunteer (not required) you may check the boxes in the brochure. If you have questions, please call Lea Billinger, Membership Chair, at 478-221-4181.

With our focus on what the Symphony League does best — support the Topeka Symphony Orchestra and Youth Ensembles, we are especially grateful for your continued friendship and support. You make everything we do possible, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Topeka Symphony League in 2020–2021..

Lea Billinger, Membership Chair
