Welcome to the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra
The mission of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra is to enrich, engage, and inspire our community through the performance of orchestral music. Founded in 1950, the FSO is a regional orchestra of some 65 professional musicians who perform new works as well as the best-loved classical repertoire. Now in its 68th season, it is the largest and most active nonprofit performing arts organization in northern Arizona.
FSO continues a long and fruitful relationship with NAU and the community. It has also grown dramatically since that first concert in the gym into a fully professional orchestra, comprised of musicians who come together from diverse backgrounds to form an impressive and exciting ensemble capable of performing a variety of musical styles and repertoire. Hundreds have played in our orchestra over the years.
