Musician's Page


The Poway Symphony Orchestra consists of community members, high school and college students, music educators, and professional musicians. These musicians, prospective and continuing orchestra members, must register through the Poway Adult School for the Orchestra class each term. Registration fees meet the expenses of our conductor, music, facilities, and liability insurance.

Come support classical music in your community. Join the Poway Symphony Orchestra. We offer a unique experience including all instrumentation for the modern symphony orchestra. The group performs three times a year at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. You will be introduced to a wide variety of the standard symphonic literature, as well as being provided the opportunity to accompany accomplished soloists from the community. No audition is required, but please contact the conductor (see the Contact page) for entrance into limited positions (woodwinds and brass).

The Fall, Winter, and Spring terms follow the dates in the current Poway Adult School Calendar.
