About

Bucks County Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1953, the Bucks County Symphony Orchestra continues to enrich our community through the performance of the finest orchestral music. We are privileged to have been an enduring part of this vibrant arts community for nearly 70 years. Our music ranges from the standards of the classical repertoire to the most recent hits of the Broadway stage. A majority of our players, and all of our board members, are volunteers. Working under the leadership of a distinguished music director, we are committed to the pursuit of musical excellence and to carrying forth the purpose and motivation of our founders: the pure joy of performing music.
