A message from Music Director Jonathan Brennand

The FVSO enters its fortieth season in this unusual year.  We made the decision to cancel and postpone live performances for the foreseeable future in order to ensure the safety of audience members and players.  This season, like no other, will be largely a silent one.  However, we greatly anticipate the opportunities to perform for you in the future and, when feasible, we may stream recently recorded performances of smaller ensembles.

The Orchestra Board and members are grateful for the continued support of its active partners – advertisers, sponsors, donors, subscribers and concert-goers.  The FVSO is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible.  We extend our heart-felt thanks for your support and engagement with the FVSO!

Mike Galluzzo, FVSO Board of Directors

The members of the FVSO mourn the passing of dear friend and colleague Janet Fantozzi, who has been a valued member of the second violin section, former board member and volunteer.  Please join us in honoring Janet’s legacy and her incredible influence on the Farmington Valley community.


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!
