About Us

Now entering its 84th season, the William & Mary Symphony Orchestra is comprised of undergraduate, graduate and community musicians of the College of William & Mary. Its mission is to grow through performances of great orchestral literature and to contribute to the artistic community of the College and beyond.

WMSO has performed major works by Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms, Dvorak, Mahler, Bartok, Ravel and Tchaikovsky and offers additional opportunities such as guest artist collaborations, premieres, and tours. In 2002, WMSO took its first international tour to Italy and Sicily. Domestically, WMSO has toured along the east coast, most recently at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

WMSO rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm and performs 4 programs annually, in addition to appearing at special events such as the Family Weekend Concert. Other than rehearsals, WMSO holds social events both within the organization and with other music ensembles, supports its members at recitals and gigs, and overall is a fantastic community within the overall College of William & Mary.

If you are a visitor, member of the William & Mary community, friend or family of the WMSO, we hope to see you at the concerts!
