Farmington Valley Symphony Orchestra is one of Connecticut’s premier community orchestras dedicated to promoting musical excellence. We believe that classical music provides a magical experience that inspires, delights, and brings our community together.

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!

We strongly encourage all attendees to be vaccinated with the most up to date vaccinations; however there is no requirement to show a vaccination card.

Masking is strongly recommended as a precaution against the spread of viruses.


FVSO is grateful to be the recipient of grant funding from the CT Humanities and the CT Office of the Arts. These funds have been critical to the financial health of the orchestra, which, for two years, has had to cancel planned programs.
