The Illinois Symphony Orchestra Guild of Bloomington-Normal has a decades-long tradition of support for the Orchestra. Now numbering over 120 members, the Guild keeps busy year-round with a wide range of activities that spotlight the ISO and include sponsoring the annual Candlelight Concert performance by the Illinois Chamber Orchestra.

Music education activities are a specialty of the Guild, which works with local schools and includes the Music Matters! school visit program and the annual Education Concert at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts.

Popular fundraisers have included the Tea and Togs high tea and fashion show, pre-concert dinners, a gourmet dinner at Epiphany Farms restaurant, bridge and Mah Jongg groups, and an annual gala, which is a joint effort of the Guild and ISO Board of Directors in Bloomington." In addition, the guild offers opportunities to meet with our talented ISO musicians at Concert Chat luncheons throughout the season and post-concert receptions. This year, the guild is organizing a June tour of kitchens as its final fund raiser of the year. Be sure to contact us if you are interested in any of these events.

Our fabulous cookbook, Encore Recipes, is a great seller and the recipes are very popular.

We stay busy and have fun with our projects for the Orchestra. We'd love to have you join us.
