The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra performs classical orchestral music in the Twin Cities.
The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra's mission is to contribute to the artistic and cultural life of the greater Twin Cities in three ways:
- By performing a wide variety of orchestral literature for concert-goers of all ages and backgrounds.
- By providing an organization for qualified musicians to develop their talents.
- By supporting music education through joint concerts with student musicians in the Bloomington Public Schools and the Minnesota String and Orchestra Teachers Association (MNSOTA)
The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra's programs include a four-concert series during the school year, a summer concert of pops and light classical repertoire and a side-by-side performance with Bloomington high school orchestras at the Bloomington Orchestra Festival.
