The Penfield Symphony Orchestra's purpose is to bring enjoyment and appreciation of fine music to the residents of Penfield and the Greater Rochester area.
It is an artistic organization with high performance standards, providing an outlet for dedicated and talented musicians. The Penfield Symphony has frequent collaborations with area educational institutions and community groups, and strives to enhance the quality of life and the cultural environment in Penfield and the surrounding area.
The PSO was founded in 1955 under the Adult Education Department of the Penfield Central School System. The orchestra's primary purpose was to provide a recreational musical outlet for graduating Penfield High School music students and other community musicians. In 1972, the Town of Penfield Department of Recreation assumed its sponsorship. In 1982 the PSO was incorporated.
As an independent organization it expanded its original mission to culturally enrich the surrounding communities through live performances of symphonic music and educational outreach programs. The PSO's annual schedule includes four symphony concerts performed at Penfield High School's beautiful auditorium.
The orchestra's concerts feature guest artists of both local and national renown. The PSO is proud to have commissioned many new works over its 62-year history.Â
