Our Story

Created in the late 1950's, the Brookline Symphony Orchestra, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, thrived for many years, but went on hiatus in 2001. In 2010, a group of friends dedicated to bringing classical music to the community decided to revive the organization and make it an integral part of the Brookline community and beyond.

Our mission

The Brookline Symphony Orchestra provides qualified volunteer musicians under professional leadership an opportunity to enhance their skills while enriching the cultural life of the community through affordable performances and outreach events.

Our impact

We are actively working to ensure that the Brookline Symphony Orchestra becomes a vital part of Brookline's cultural life -- a community orchestra in the truest sense of the word. In addition to our traditional concerts, we hold a number of free outreach events, including free full orchestra concerts at schools, nursing homes, and hospitals. We send musicians to various venues around the community to present residents of Brookline quality chamber music outside of the concert hall. We also participate in local cultural and community events, such as the First Light Festival, or the Brookline Food Emergency Food Pantry fundraiser, where we enliven the occasions and gatherings with our music.

We need your support

To run an orchestra takes a tremendous amount of time, dedication, and money. We want to sustain our success through our current season and for years to come, and we need your help. Tax deductible donations from our patrons are the primary source of funding for this organization.

Come to our concerts. Share our information with your friends and family. You can connect with us easily through social media: "like us" on facebook, "follow us" on twitter and join our mailing list.
