Annual Notables memberships may be purchased at the luncheon. The cost is $10 for individuals, $20 for family and $50 for supporter.

Proceeds from the luncheon and annual membership dues help the Notables fulfill their mission as the volunteer support organization for the PBSO by providing meals for the musicians on concert weekends, a free educational concert for all fifth-graders throughout the area, financial support for the orchestra and other volunteer work as needed. The Notables help support a summer workshop for musicians who wish to improve their instrumental skills and offer support to enable students enrolled in orchestra classes to rent instruments for a nominal fee.
