Two Holiday Pops Concerts will be held in December and our popular Lawn Concert in June.





The 2018-2019 season was dedicated in memory of our dear friend, Philip Janes.

Donations to FVSO, in Philip’s memory, will be applied to the creation ofThe Philip Janes Memorial Conductor’s Chair”, an endowment fund established for the sustaining support of FVSO.

Founded in 1981, the Farmington Valley Symphony Orchestra performs 6-7 concerts each season with a variety of classical, romantic and popular holiday favorites.  The orchestra serves Farmington, Canton, Avon, Simsbury, Burlington, Bloomfield, West Hartford & Hartford, as well as Greater Hartford and the Connecticut River Valley.  We are your local, civic orchestra and look forward to seeing you at one of our concerts!

FVSO thanks our sponsors for their generous support!
