The Pensacola Symphony Orchestra Guild is a group of active music lovers who support and promote the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra through fundraising, community education, and assistance to the orchestra. In addition to providing financial support, we encourage music appreciation by the youth in our community through Music in Education for elementary grades, and Belles and Beaux for high school students. We also extend hospitality to guest artists and to the orchestra members.† See more pictures on Events Page.

APRIL MEETING

Our April meeting was held at the Hilton Garden Inn where we enjoyed a delicious buffet.† We were entertained not only by beautiful music, but by interesting stories from Abigale Walker (bassoon) and Matt Fossa (clarinet).† Abigale began playing with the PSO at the young age of 14.† Matt just released an album of his original music. He is accompanied on the album by other PSO musicians.† Abigale and Mattís music included a piece by Mahler, a song Matt wrote for his daughter, and another from his album. Abigale showed us that jazz could be played on the bassoon. They also played a cute song they play for pre-schools.
