The Syracuse Orchestra

Our Mission: To engage and inspire all community members throughout Central New York with outstanding orchestral and ensemble performances, and innovative education and outreach initiatives

Our Vision: To contribute to a diverse, vibrant, equitable, and culturally rich community through the power of great music, and in so doing, enhance the quality of life and economic vitality of Central New York.

The Syracuse Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit formed in late 2012 as a musician-led cooperative orchestra, one of only two in the United States. This business model is designed to be artistically excellent, administratively lean, and financially resilient. The orchestra presents more than 50 concerts and reaches 100,000 people annually in venues ranging from libraries and health care facilities to public parks, churches, museums, and our home venue, the Crouse-Hinds Theater at the Civic Center.

The Syracuse Orchestra is composed of a diverse group of talented musicians hailing from all across the globe, bringing with them a breadth of musical talent that extends far beyond the Syracuse community.

The Syracuse Orchestra takes great pride in helping Central New York maintain a strong cultural community. As a community that offers a professional orchestra, we have the ability to empower our youth to value the arts and music. Our commitment to education and community outreach is what makes our orchestra stand out from the rest!

With innovative programs like Healing Harmonies, The Syracuse Orchestra musicians are able to play live music and bring comfort to patients and their families at local hospitals and medical centers. We also offer a variety of educational programs available for all grades and ability levels in our community’s schools. Our Kids Series allows children to be at the forefront of concerts with programming specifically designed for them. And as always, kids 18 and under are FREE to all regular-season Symphoria performances!
