Becoming a Member
Making a contribution to The Fund for Music and becoming a member of the Philharmonic Society is a marvelous way for you to join hands with fellow patrons who share your love of music. Membership starts at just $50. As a member, you will be contributing to the extraordinary musical events presented by the Philharmonic Society at Orange County’s most prestigious venues: the Renée & Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and Samueli Theater at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Irvine Barclay Theatre, Soka Performing Arts Center, and educational programs at K-12 schools throughout the county. You will also receive exclusive member-only benefits, such as invitational rehearsals and exclusive champagne intermission receptions.

Your membership, at any level, makes a difference. Please consider joining or renewing your support so that the Philharmonic Society’s performances will continue to be a source of enjoyment for music lovers of all ages and a cultural jewel for our community.

Sustaining Members
If you would like to become a member of the Society and be a part of the great work that we do but would prefer not to make a lump sum donation, please consider becoming a Philharmonic Society Sustaining Member. As a sustaining member, you can give $25, $50, or $100 a month and help the Society sustain the exceptional quality of music we present every season. Your membership will automatically renew every year, and your gift will be charged to your credit card monthly until you tell us to stop – it’s that simple. We can’t do it without your support. Please sign up today!
