Genesee Symphony Orchestra

(585) 343-9313 ext. 32

Genesee Symphony Orchestra is a dynamic, regional orchestra that presents an ambitious portfolio of concerts for the enrichment of our community through high-quality performance, educational opportunities, guest artists, and partnerships. Founded in 1947 and one of the oldest civic orchestras in New York state, their success is built on a solid foundation set in place largely by the enthusiasm of their orchestra conductor, Maestro Raffaelle Ponti, and the dozens of musicians that call the GSO home. The GSO mission - to link a diverse public with the arts - is paramount to everything they do. From their annual Meet the Orchestra event to the Young Artist Competition and String Workshop, the GSO engages the community and brings a distinct awareness of the arts to our rural region. While the GSO is the Orchestra-in-Residence at The Stuart Steiner Theatre, Genesee Center for the Arts at Genesee Community College, they often take their "show on the road" and routinely schedule concerts at various locations throughout the four-county GLOW area. The GSO hosts world-class artists and composerGenesee Symphony Orchestras as well as a multitude of well-known local soloists that give the audience a professional-level musical experience.

The GSO board of directors is a vibrant mix of local music aficionados, civic leaders, business and professional people. They can be found at every concert and throughout the community where they organize events to benefit the care and keeping of the GSO. Tickets to their concerts are reasonably priced; Season Ticket and Family Pass information can be found on their website or by calling or emailing the GSO.
