As fellowship-trained spine surgeon in Abilene, Texas, Paul W. McDonough, MD, treats patients at Abilene Regional Medical Center. Outside of work, Dr. Paul McDonough contributes to the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra.

Those who wish to contribute to the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra can volunteer with the organization’s guild. Members of the guild meet nine times per year to enjoy music in members’ homes and discuss upcoming concerts. Volunteers help in a number of ways, including by organizing seating for students during the Philharmonic Discover Music Series concert.

Guild volunteers can also help meet the needs of musicians and visiting artists by assisting with auditions, transportation, and concert logistics. Further, volunteers can help keep costs low by hosting visiting musicians in their homes.

Finally, the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra Guild offers youth an opportunity to take part in Belles and Beaus, a five-year program through which young people serve as ushers at concerts. Recognized by the governor of Texas, this program can enhance students’ future college applications.
