About the Saline Symphony Orchestra

The Saline Symphony Orchestra’s purpose is to serve the community through public awareness of fine arts, musicianship, and performance opportunities to those of all ages. 

Our Mission:

At Saline Symphony Orchestra, Inc., our mission is to enrich the cultural fabric of our community through the transformative power of music. We are dedicated to providing high-quality orchestral performances, fostering artistic growth, and nurturing a lifelong appreciation for music.

Our primary goal is to create an inclusive and accessible space where musicians of all ages and skill levels can come together to share their passion for orchestral music. Through regular rehearsals and performances, we aim to inspire and engage both our members and audiences, fostering a sense of unity and connection within our community.

As a nonprofit organization, we are committed to making orchestral music education and experiences accessible to all. We strive to provide scholarships and educational opportunities for talented young musicians who may lack financial resources. Additionally, we actively collaborate with local schools and community organizations to promote music education and encourage participation in our programs.

We value artistic excellence and continuously strive for musical growth. Our orchestra is led by experienced and dedicated musicians who guide our members through challenging repertoire, helping them develop their skills and reach new heights. We believe in the power of music to transcend barriers and promote personal and collective growth.

 We aim to foster a love for orchestral music, inspire future generations of musicians, and provide a platform for cultural exchange and artistic expression. Together, we aspire to create harmonious experiences, forge meaningful connections, and foster a lifelong love for music. Join us on this musical journey as we contribute to the vibrant and enriched cultural landscape of our community in Central Arkansas.

Established in 2014 as the Saline County Community Orchestra, the Saline Symphony Orchestra is a volunteer effort of musicians from the Central Arkansas area.

Our musicians come from a wide range of backgrounds, from student to professional to musical educator; from high school to college to career to retirees. We unite in our love of music, and our enthusiasm in bringing that music to Arkansas through performances. Our programs often include children as part of our commitment to sharing and preserving the love of music through youth opportunities.

Currently, the orchestra performs twice a year; once during the holiday season and once in the spring, with other ensemble opportunities as they arise. We recruit in the late summer for the fall semester and late winter for the spring semester.

Donations to the orchestra pay for access to music for performance, printing costs, performance expenses, scholarships and more.
