ABOUT

The Solano Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1987 to provide the highest quality of live symphony music for the enjoyment, education and promotion of the arts. It is primarily made up of skilled local musicians who support their community by sharing their valuable talents and passion for music. Maestro Semyon Lohss became the Music Director and Conductor in the 1992-1993 season, leading the orchestra to an ever-higher standard of excellence. The Symphony performs five concerts each year and also works to engage youth in our community to expand their knowledge in music and showcase their talent.
