The Greenville Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to providing educational and cultural opportunities for the citizens of Greenville and surrounding communities through the presentation of live orchestral music. Offering excellence in live musical performance, the orchestra enriches lives, educates minds and encourages community support of the arts.

What began in 1948 as a group of volunteer musicians, practicing and performing in the Women’s College auditorium on the old Furman campus, has now become one of the finest symphony orchestras in the Southeast.

World-class concert facilities, musicians at the height of their profession, an internationally known music director and conductor, and a community that embraces symphonic music – each has made the Greenville Symphony Orchestra what it is today.
