The Traverse Symphony Orchestra is regarded as being among the finest regional orchestras in the country, characterized by uncompromising excellence and featuring fine area musicians, national guest artists and one outstanding music director. However, the Symphony’s vision has always extended beyond exceptional performances.

  • An inspiring educational program engaging artists ages 8-80
  • A leader among local arts organizations with a longevity lasting 60+ years
  • The perfect way for you to connect with a unique arts community
  • Dedicated to enriching the lives of those living in the Grand Traverse region and our five-county region

Achieving that vision depends on resources, and in today’s funding landscape the future of the arts is more dependent than ever on support from individuals. If the Traverse Symphony Orchestra is to realize its extraordinary potential, it must secure sustainable funding.
