Passionate, Invested, Empowering

Discover how rewarding it is to be a part of a large society passionate about classical music and the on-going excellence of the world’s best orchestra. Built on tradition, The League of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (formerly known as The Women's Association) has been proudly serving the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1934.

With the support of over 250 men and women, the League hosts a myriad of music education programs, raises over a million dollars a year, and provides opportunities to meet world-class musicians, conductors, and visiting artists.
