Under the leadership of GRAMMY-winning music director, JoAnn Falletta, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra is Virginia’s pre-eminent professional symphony orchestra with a mission of inspiring, educating and connecting audiences of all ages.

Founded in 1920, it is ranked in the top ten percent of professional orchestras nationwide and serves the entire Southeastern Virginia region with Classics, Pops and Family concert series in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News and Williamsburg as well as performances in outlying Virginia and North Carolina communities, reaching more than 160,000 concert-goers every year. Additionally, the orchestra annually reaches 45,000 children, students and lifelong learners with its education and community programs. The Virginia Symphony has performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center and is the cornerstone of the performing arts in Hampton Roads.


The VSO strives to engage and educate a broad audience, helping ensure Hampton Roads remains a vibrant, culturally rich community through our diverse programming. As one of Hampton Roads’ flagship artistic institutions, we offer high-quality orchestral concerts, as well as music education and community engagement performances in local schools and community centers. These activities engage residents, provide inspiration, and offer education and entertainment to 100,000 people annually.

Each season, the VSO performs 150 concerts and small ensemble performances in 18 different cities and counties throughout Southeastern Virginia. These include mainstage performances such as the Classics series, the Pops! series, and the Peanut Butter & Jam family concert series. The VSO also offers 26 full-orchestra Young People’s Concerts in 11 school districts, coaching sessions for underserved students led by professional musicians, and free public performances.
