In the spring of 1949, a group of music enthusiasts came together to form a local band for their own pleasure and for that of the community. However, the first audition call brought in more string players than winds. It was decided that the band concept would be changed to compliment the talents Florence had to offer and an orchestra was born.
Seven conductors and five performance venues later the 2018-2019 season marks our 70th anniversary season.
We invite you to celebrate “Going Platinum!” with the FSO.
