History

The LA Phil Affiliates have supported the LA Phil for nearly a century, evolving alongside the orchestra and remaining among its most dedicated and involved patrons.

In 1923, the Women’s Committee was formed and became the first support group of the LA Phil.  Over the years, additional committees were established as the LA Phil began performing "run-out" concerts throughout the greater Los Angeles area.  Members of the various committees sold concert tickets, hosted fundraising events, and provided volunteer service to help promote the orchestra and encourage financial support for the LA Phil.

In 1967, the autonomous committees came under the umbrella of the LA Phil Affiliates. There are currently 13 committees and 600+ members.
