ESO League

Elgin-Symphony-LeagueFor 45 years, the Elgin Symphony League has been one of the principal supports of our award-winning Orchestra.  Each year, League members contribute their time and talents, along with being ambassadors to the community on behalf of the ESO.  We invite you to join us at our League meetings and hear our guest speakers talk about their careers and interests.  For more information about the Elgin Symphony League or to attend a meeting, please contact Jeanne Hebeisen at (847) 741-6264 or email League@elginsymphony.org.
