Professional Symphony Orchestra in Wallingford

WSO Dedicated to Quality Music

Music heals the soul and brings joy to those who listen.

For 49 years, the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra has been dedicated to bringing quality music to Wallingford and surrounding towns. Founded in December, 1974,  the WSO is composed of a 60-member ensemble of professional 

musicians. The inaugural concert was endorsed and funded by the Horizons Committee of the Wallingford Bicentennial Commission as a project in tribute to our nation’s 200th anniversary.  The WSO performances have grown to include not only an annual season comprised of multiple indoor concerts; but also special events throughout the area, including an outdoor summer Pops Concert.  A volunteer Board of Directors oversees the operation of the orchestra; meeting monthly to monitor the budget, plan and approve the concert season and organize fundraising.
