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!


Please join us on Sunday, October 22, 2023 for the first concert of our 2023 – 24 season! The FVSO celebrates 10 years with Music Director Jonathan Colby. The season includes music from Mr. Colby’s first season such as Dvorak Symphony No. 5 featured in this first concert. Click Here For Tickets


We are pleased to announce the appointment of Kerry Muenchow, as Concertmaster of the Farmington Valley Symphony Orchestra. Kerry joined the FVSO in 2019 after graduating from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). Kerry enjoys playing in the pit orchestra at the Bradley Playhouse and recently accompanied the MasterWorks Chorus Verdi Requiem at Carnegie Hall. She’s excited and honored to be a part of the continued musical growth and development of the FVSO. 


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.
