Join the RSOL and help support the Reading Symphony Orchestra

The purpose of the membership is to support the projects and activities sponsored by the Reading Symphony Orchestra League and, in so doing, promote the Reading Symphony Orchestra. As a member, you will have the opportunity to participate in RSOL sponsored events such as the Fashion Show, a yearly trip to the Kimmel Center to hear the Philadelphia Orchestra, providing dinner on rehearsal nights for the musicians, and four meetings per year with exciting entertainment such as “up close and personal talks with a musician,” a special December program which has often included a Berks County high school show choir, recreation of historical people, and a night with talented young musicians.

Everyone with an interest in the RSO is invited to join the league!
