The League is a sponsor of the Masterworks Series at the platinum level and also supports Link Up Concerts, the Youth Orchestras, post-concert receptions, the Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition as a part of the Southeastern Piano Festival and "Parties with a Purpose" (more information below) held throughout the year and other special fundraising events.

Join, and Make A Difference
