Richmond Symphony Orchestra

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

A symphony orchestra is often viewed as a mystery. Something that is out of reach for the average person-not only geographically, but culturally and financially. It is something you only find in big cities and that only certain types of people attend.

While those stereotypes may apply to other symphonies, the Richmond Symphony Orchestra is different. In fact it is very different! It is convenient to the small communities in east central Indiana and west central Ohio. Parking is free. The concerts are affordable (less than the cost of dinner and a movie) and all are welcome!

The RSO has remained true to its educational roots in Earlham College and Richmond High School. From the beginning, annual competitions were held for young musicians with the winners featured as soloists at a concert. The Young Artist Competition is still the RSO's longest running program.

The RSO provides some of the best educational and artistic opportunities in our community including the Orchestra within an Orchestra competition, email "cliff notes" and pre-concert conversations on the classical concerts. A Shadowing program offers aspiring musicians and the curious a chance to shadow musicians, learn about their life and sit by their side as they rehearse.

Each year amazing guest artists are showcased in our six concert series (4 classical - 2 pops.) Special events include a concert in the round, free concerts for 3rd and 7th graders and a season kick-off celebration. Rehearsals for all Saturday concerts are open and especially great for first time attendees who enjoy the more casual atmosphere and the $5 ticket price!

Come enjoy the Symphony-a rare, big city perk in an Indiana city called Richmond.
