Carson City Symphony was founded in 1984 as the Carson City Chamber Orchestra and gave its first concert in October that year. It is a community orchestra open to amateur and volunteer professional musicians. Members come from all walks of life and have ranged from elementary school students to senior citizens. The Symphony performs five or more concerts each year for audiences in Carson City. It also has performed in Minden, Gardnerville, Fallon, South Lake Tahoe, and Virginia City. We play many works by contemporary composers and have commissioned and premiered several pieces.

Our Mission Statement (2019)

The mission of Carson City Symphony Association is to
(1) enhance the quality of life in northern Nevada by providing creative, educational, and social opportunities for amateur and volunteer professional instrumentalists and vocalists of all ages;
(2) educate and entertain a broad and diverse audience, including residents, visitors, and tourists;
(3) enhance music education for the K-12 student population and adults; and
(4) expand our reputation for adventurous programming by playing music by contemporary composers and featuring non-traditional solo instruments.


The Carson City Symphony Assoc. is a member of the Carson City Downtown Business Assoc.
