Friends of the North Shore Symphony Orchestra was first established in 1993 for the purpose of aiding in the financial support of the North Shore Symphony Orchestra (NSSO). Membership in Friends of NSSO is open to anyone who makes a contribution of $10 or more in a given year.  Members are entitled to vote on resolutions and in the election of officers and directors at the annual meeting.

In addition to fundraising efforts, Friends of NSSO’s Board of Directors has assumed responsibility for all business matters of the Orchestra and, more recently, for managing many of the concert production tasks as well.
