Who plays in the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra?

The men and women of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra are members of our community. They teach in our schools and at NAU, they manage businesses, they are students, and parents, and neighbors. And they are all professional musicians who bring their skill, passion, and talent to the stage.

Sponsor a Musician!

Our talented musicians are the lifeblood of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra. Each one is a passionate artist who is dedicated to making the most inspiring and moving music for you.

Participating in the FSO Sponsor a Chair Program personalizes your orchestra experience and brings a new perspective to the music you love. Whether you have an affinity for a particular instrument or player, you will enjoy a sense of inclusion as you watch and listen to the FSO and your sponsored musician.
