about the symphony

The Skokie Valley Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra that has been serving lovers of fine music in northern Chicago and on the North Shore since the early 1960's.

The orchestra's mission:

  • to provide symphonic music at affordable prices in a venue that is comfortable, accessible, and has excellent accoustics
  • to perform works that challenge both players and audiences
  • to provide an opportunity for talented young musicians to perform as soloists with a symphony orchestra
  • to explore new forms of programming to enhance audience education, experience, and interest
  • to attract young people and under-served audiences to concerts and pre-concert programs.

The orchestra welcomes new musicians, both highly skilled community players as well as professionals. Please arrange for an audition with our personnel manager. Use our contact page.
