Our 2016-2017 Symphony League Co-Presidents are dyanamic duo Boyd and Cheryl Black. The Camden residents are tireless supporters of the arts, and actively engaged in numerous cultural programs. Boyd is retired from the University of South Carolina, where he served as Financial Officer for the Arts and Humanities school. He currently serves as Executive Committee President  for the Kershaw County Fine Arts Center. Cheryl is a retired music teacher and continues to teach piano. In their spare time they enjoy travel and playing in the Camden Community Concert Band.



The purpose of the Symphony League is to foster, promote and increase musical knowledge and appreciation of the performing arts in the community, and to cooperate with and support the South Carolina Philharmonic.



In 1965, affiliation with the American Symphony Orchestra League (ASOL) showed the young Columbia Festival Orchestra the importance of women’s groups to help promote and support the Orchestra’s activities. On March 17, 1965, at a meeting of the Board of the Orchestra’s Association, Dr. Robert Ochs moved that then President Frank Sloan appoint a committee to make plans to organize a women’s group to focus on providing support to the orchestra. The women who were members of the Orchestra Board at that time were appointed. They were Mrs. Alva Lumpkin, Mrs. Norman Arnold, Mrs. Cyril Busbee, Mrs. Marjorie Stands, and Mrs. R. E. L. Freeman.
