The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra League began in 1987 as "Symphonia Obbligato", an auxiliary group organized to provide financial and volunteer support for the orchestra's performances and other activities. In 1991, It became a separate tax-exempt organization with its own by-laws, board of directors and officers. In 1994 and 2016, name changes were made to reflect the orchestra's name change and to clarify the League's mission.
