Founded in 1923, The Women's Committee (Honorary) was the first support committee for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Although the committee is now inactive, members celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2013.
Over the years, members participated in Symphonies for Schools, Philharmonic Friends letter writing campaigns, Pension Fund concerts, annual fundraisers, and salons. The salons were general meetings that took place at private homes, featuring short meetings and performances by guest artists.
Membership eligibility was met by promoting the Los Angeles Philharmonic in all its activities and by annually purchasing a minimum of one season ticket. Members came from all areas of Los Angeles and included many active and civic-minded women, one of whom was the late Dorothy Buffum Chandler.
