South Bend Symphony Orchestra
conducted by Maestro Alastair Willis
The South Bend Symphony Orchestra began in 1932 as an all-volunteer organization. Now in its 89th season, it has become a well-recognized, professional Midwestern orchestra and is well on its way to being “South Bend’s” orchestra.
The South Bend Symphony performs 20 concerts annually: including five Jack M. Champaigne Masterworks Series concerts, three Indiana Trust Pops Series concerts, three June H. Edwards Mosaic Series concerts, Home for the Holidays concerts, the MLK Day Celebration Concert, four Shein Family Young People’s Discovery concerts, a free outdoor summer concert, and a newly-added family concert. In addition to the Season’s performances, the SBSO is incredibly active in the community with over fifty-five free community performances and events in schools, libraries, museums, and retirement homes.
