Symphony West Orchestra, in partnership with the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Outreach Department, makes its home in the Western suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. The Orchestra is committed to continuing education and enrichment of the arts for children and adults of all ages through its family-friendly concerts.
The Orchestra is incorporated as a non-profit organization and meets its financial needs through advertisers, sponsors and ticket sales and grants. Symphony West Orchestra is an associate member of the North Olmsted Community Council.
The Orchestra has three main objectives:
- To provide a means for persons to participate in musical fine arts activities, rehearsals and performance,
- To contribute to the musical fine arts culture in the metropolitan area, and
- To be available to other community groups and organizations in the metropolitan area to further interest in the local Fine Arts.
Support Symphony West!
Make dinner a selfless act by joining us for a fundraiser to support Symphony West Orchestra. Come in to the Chipotle at Great Northern Shopping Center in North Olmsted on Wednesday, December 6th between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause, and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Symphony West Orchestra.
Symphony West Orchestra is open to many different types of musicians. There are high school and adult students who want to develop and refine their skills. There are people who played in high school, but chose not to pursue music as a career, and wish to maintain their skills. There are music teachers who otherwise would not get an opportunity to play with a group, as well as professionals who enjoy the more relaxed atmosphere of a community group and want to see music flourish at a community level. Every member has a common love of music despite differences in ability and all strive for a quality performance.
Interested in joining? Email us at email@example.com. Please be sure to include your phone number and a valid email address. We have openings in all sections, but we are especially in need of violin, viola, cello, string bass, french horn, and percussion.
