Our mission is simple:
We bring great music to life.

These are difficult times for many in our community and that's why our mission has never been more important than it is now. In the coming year Rochester Symphony is committed to reaching new audiences in different ways with the uplifting power of music. Help us rise to the challenge. Please consider a donation today!

Cheers to 40 Years has been cancelled due the current public health situation. Please see information below regarding ticket return options.


Dear Friends,

Our 2019/20 Centennial Season has come to a close. Like many organizations we have been working through changes and the disappointments of cancelled events due to the COVID-19 public health situation. As we look to next season, we are planning creative and new ways to carry out our mission. Whether our patrons are at home, in smaller groups or different settings, we'll be finding ways to Bring Great Music to Life. We hope you'll stay connected! You can join our email list (below), follow us on social media (social buttons above) and catch up with our two blogs (tab on main menu!).


Please notify us of how you'd like your ticket returns processed by June 11. Contact information is below.

A special greeting from Rochester Symphony to everyone at home:

On Saturday, March 14 , Rochester Symphony musicians thought they would be performing Wagner and Brahms for you at our "Cheers to 40 Years" concert. We've had to postpone that performance in order to ensure the safety of our community, but our thoughts are with our patrons and community members who are practicing social distancing, self-quarantine, and getting used to their homes as their new places of work and entertainment. We can't wait to celebrate with you all once we're on the other side of this! Stay well, stay healthy and stay musical.

See more musical greetings from Rochester Symphony musicians on our video blog!
