Friends present proceeds from Tour of Notable Homes to Westfield Symphony

Who We Are

The Westfield Symphony Orchestra Friends is a vibrant organization of community-based volunteers dedicated to the expansion of the orchestra's audience and projects leading to its fund development. It is comprised of men and women from Westfield and surrounding communities who are passionate about supporting the arts, their orchestra and their communities and are looking to make long lasting and fulfilling relationships with like-minded people. Established in 1983, the Friends has an ever expanding membership of dynamic people who eagerly plan and execute fundraising and audience development activities for WSO as well as social events for the general membership.
