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!




The FVSO Covid-19 Committee meets weekly to assess the safety and risks of resuming rehearsals.  The rehearsal scheduled for Wed 1/19 has been canceled.  We’re watching the trends in case numbers and hospitalization rate as possible indicators for returning to rehearsals.  At the moment, the committee cannot make a determination on the possibility of resuming rehearsals on Wednesday, January 26th. We will meet again on Monday, 1/24 to examine the latest data from the state of CT. We ask for your patience in this matter which has many variables and factors which the committee is carefully taking into account. 






In anticipation of having a shorter run of rehearsals, orchestra members are encouraged to download parts and practice.  Parts are available via links on the Rehearsals Page
