New Members Always Welcome at RSL!
Who can join?
Our mission is to cultivate a dedicated volunteer member base that supports the Richmond Symphony through fund raising, education and community involvement.  Membership in the RSL is open to men and women who are interested in supporting, assisting and furthering the success of the Richmond Symphony. Our Membership Committee welcomes all new members with informative Member Orientations and the appointment of the RSL mentors who will introduce all of our wonderful volunteer opportunities to new members.

What kinds of volunteer opportunities are available?
Help with food preparation and décor for events, manage an event, solicit donations for our events, work with students at competitions or exhibitions, host tours at the Designer House…there is always something to do with the RSL. Contribute your time and talents to help music grow in Richmond.

What is the best way to get to know the RSL?
While you can jump right in with a membership, a great way to get to know the RSL is to attend our events. Let us know that you are interested in learning more about the RSL and we will happily introduce you to the RSL.
