History of the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra

"If your kids are dancing in the aisles at an RMSO Concert, we know one thing for sure:  We're doing our job properly."

In June 2016, the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra was born.  In March 2017, the Orchestra received its incorporation registration as the Rocky Mountain Symphony Society.  The RMSO  is managed by a Governing Board of Directors.

"We believe that culture is not exclusive to big cities. We think that Folks who choose to live in Small Towns should still have access to a Live Symphony Orchestra."

The Rocky Mountain Symphony hopes to satisfy a desire among Albertans for accessible programming of excellent live Orchestral music, regardless of where they live. We believe that the vast repertoire of Western Art Music should be accessible to all, not only to those lucky enough to enjoy the thriving artistic and cultural scenes of urban centres.

We aim to challenge and change the misconception that Classical Music is Elitist. Orchestral music is for everyone. Our favourite movies are filled with orchestral masterpieces, light classics, opera gems, and of course, movie soundtracks written especially for each film. We guarantee there is something for everyone at our concerts.
