The Music is Back!”


Our next concert will be on Sunday, March 20, 2022 and will feature the mighty Symphony in D minor by the French-Belgian composer César Franck, paired with another French masterpiece, the Cello Concerto No.1 by Camille Saint Saëns. The soloist for this performance will be our principal cellist Daniel Grab.

Welcome to the Poway Symphony Orchestra


The Poway Symphony Orchestra is a semi-professional orchestra that performs classical concerts at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts.


The Poway Symphony Orchestra brings symphonic music to the North County Inland area. The concert programs include the music of the great composers, from the classical to the contemporary. Sometimes the orchestra invites nationally renowned guest artists for the performance of major concertos.


Our purpose is to offer audiences the experience of live symphonic concerts for their cultural and educational benefit, and hence to enrich the communities in the area.


The orchestra presents three concerts each season, typically in November, March and May.
