Lethbridge Symphony

Residents of Southern Alberta are justly proud of the Lethbridge Symphony, a true community orchestra that combines the talents of many of this area’s finest musicians.

Founded in 1960, and incorporated as a charitable non-profit in 1961, our first half-century of music was created by local artists who played on a volunteer basis. They gave freely of their time and talents so that audiences might share with them the joys of symphonic music. A resident music director was hired in 1978, and our resident professional quartet was founded in 1982.

Today, your Symphony still comes from a broad cross-section of the community. In addition to many skilled amateur players, the orchestra is composed of outstanding local professionals as well as talented students. Occasionally, a few professional players are brought in to fill positions that cannot be filled locally.

This unique mix of musicians combines to form the highly successful Lethbridge Symphony. We produce a dozen large events annually, including the Symphony Series, featuring the full orchestra, and Symphony Extras that feature small ensembles from the Symphony, as well as our ever-popular Kids Choir event, Golf Tournament and Love Notes.

Any musicians who may be interested in joining the orchestra should please contact us.

We create and promote a first class orchestra producing memorable musical experiences for audiences of all ages.
