Volunteer Guilds


We are a new group of music lovers dedicated to supporting The Florida Orchestra through friend-raising, fund-raising and volunteering. Our members live throughout Hillsborough County and Eastern Pasco County.

We invite you to attend our meetings, where there will be food, drink and lots of friendly socialization and opportunities to meet musicians and to hear backstage insights from TFO staff.

Meetings are scheduled for April 13, 2022 (a Garden Party social, the Tampa Friends Annual Fundraiser) and May 11, 2022. Future events will be posted here, or visit us on Facebook at Tampa Friends of The Florida Orchestra.

Please stop by our table in the Straz lobby when you are attending concerts. We look forward to talking with you.

Join us now in supporting The Florida Orchestra in its mission to enrich the life of the Tampa Bay area with the unique experience of live symphonic music.
