History of the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra

Vision of the RMSO

The RMSO wishes to help grow communities of Orchestral Music lovers in small towns in the Shadows of the Rockies by delivering engaging Orchestral experiences in unique ways and places.

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

Now in its third season, the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra was born in June 2016.  By March 2017, the Orchestra received its Alberta Non-Profit registration as the Rocky Mountain Symphony Society.  The RMSO is managed by a Governing Board of Directors.
