Since 1952, the Lubbock Symphony Guild has continually supported the Lubbock

 Symphony Orchestra.  The Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with 

approximately 300 members.  The primary focus of the Guild is to support the  

Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, through both fundraising and volunteer 

placements. The primary annual fundraiser is the Winter Ball, held each spring. Past 

fundraisers have included style shows, in-home parties and brunches at members’ 

homes, and a show home.  The Guild is involved with and provides volunteers for 

projects including the fifth grade and junior high education concerts, concert 

receptions, pre-concert dinners for the musicians, LSO office volunteers, and the 

debutante program.


The Lubbock Symphony Debutante Program, sponsored by the Guild, provides an 

excellent venue for young women of high school age to participate in community 

service activities that enhance leadership and interpersonal skills.  This 

program provides volunteer support for the LSG while also training young 

women to be our future leaders. The program involves a commitment to 

learn about the LSG and to work in a volunteer capacity with Symphony 

events. Senior debutantes are presented at the Winter Ball. The first 

Lubbock Debutante Presentation was in 1980, with 5 girls introduced at 

the Civic Center in pastel gowns; white gowns thereafter. So far, more than 

700 girls have been presented as Lubbock Symphony Guild debutante.
