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 Saturday, Jun 3, for our ever-popular lawn concert.  This year’s theme is “Hands across the Sea”, featuring hornpipes, marches and ballads from British & American composers. For more information about FVSO’s concert => Click here





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. 





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.
