Don't like lots of meetings, but want to help with fundraising?
The purpose of the Guild is to promote and increase music appreciation throughout the Peninsula and to assist the Board of Directors in fund-raising events. If you are a person who wants more than just their name on another list and enjoys hands-on work with a fine arts organization, then come join our team! There are no monthly meetings and most communications are through e-mail and by phone. Meetings are held only when necessary in order to prepare for a fund-raiser or event. There is a small assessment of $15 per year which helps to cover the expenses of the Guild.
