Founded in 1953, the Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest community orchestras in the country originating in the health professions still presenting regular concerts. Although a number of its members are still health care professionals, many non-medical members are involved and invited to be involved. The orchestra holds benefit concerts on behalf of medical and mental health charities.

The Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest youth orchestras in Southern California.

The Burbank Chorale, once known as the Burbank Choral Club, is one of the oldest musical organizations in California. It is the longest continuously performing arts organization in the San Fernando Valley. Beginning as a musical group associated with the Woman's Club of Burbank, it presented its first program in 1920. Not long afterwards, the group adopted the name Burbank Choral Club and, separating from the Women's Club, allowed men to join its membership.
