This year, the Baton Rouge Symphony League is celebrating its 73rd year of serving the community by supporting the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra (BRSO). Year after year, the BRSO brings the best of the world’s most talented artists to our city’s stages and inspires a new generation of young artists across our community. 

Through this partnership, the Baton Rouge Symphony League helps fill a great need for continued arts education and outreach to the young people of Baton Rouge. The League hosts an annual Culture Camp for the Boys & Girls Club, supports the Louisiana Youth Orchestra, and participates in many coordinated activities in the arts community. All of this is possible thanks to the generous support of the citizens and businesses of Baton Rouge.
