Upcoming Concerts and Events

Amidst the many challenges these past months, The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra has remained determined to keep the music alive! We’ve made the decision, due to Coronavirus- imposed restrictions, that both of the fall concerts will move to backup dates already scheduled in March and May (See revised schedule below.) The health and safety of our patrons continues to guide our planning and deliberate decision making on upcoming programming.
