About the GSO

The Greenville Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to providing educational and cultural opportunities for the citizens of Greenville and surrounding communities through the presentation of live orchestral music. Offering excellence in live musical performance, the orchestra enriches lives, educates minds and encourages community support of the arts.




To classically curious newcomers or the most dedicated patrons to the adventure seekers, music lovers, dreamers, students, neighbors, vacationers, families and children: we invite you to discover the GSO, encore after encore.



Orchestral music is played alongside others and for others; it’s value is found in the collective experience. The GSO is about people as much as it is instruments. From the Maestro to the board, get to know your community orchestra.



We strive to enhance our shared sense of place, as well as foster and progress a local way of life that both embraces and encourages arts and creativity. Join us. We will help you find where to sit, park and stay.

Thanks to the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra ensures quality music education is available to 25,000 children, adults, and young musicians at absolutely NO COST to participants.
