History of the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra
The story of the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra begins in the 1940s when a group of amateur musicians started playing together in Greenwich. Several concerts led to the founding of the Greenwich Philharmonic in 1958, and eventually, the orchestra began a steady rise in growth and prestige. Throughout history, the orchestra has been successfully managed by an experienced and dedicated board of directors who are passionate about showcasing wonderful music for their audience.
Today, this professional orchestra is 85 members strong and has expanded its concert season to five performances every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. The Greenwich Symphony Orchestra believes that they owe their success to dedicated audience members and friends who have supported the orchestra and have helped them present a wide variety of music to the town of Greenwich.
