Symphony 30

Symphony 30 is a support group of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra consisting of women from the Greater Birmingham Area. With almost 100 members, the Symphony 30 encourages attendance to ASO concerts and programs and raises funds for the ASO's educational outreach and operating budget. The group meets four times a year and hosts the annual fundraising Picnic. Members are encouraged to subscribe to one of the ASO's series and to attend other concerts as a group.

Symphony 30's main fundraising event is the Symphony 30 Picnic, held this year on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 4pm at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Symphony 30's Annual Picnic at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens is one of Birmingham's Best Fall Family events! Food is provided by Jim 'N Nick's, and all proceeds benefit the outreach and missions of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

ASO Musicians will present an hour long orchestral concert of popular musical selections. There's even a "kid zone" where children can make crafts, try out their own musical instruments, and enjoy spending time with their family.
