Diablo Symphony Orchestra

About the Organization

In its 53nd year, the Diablo Symphony is not only the oldest aggregation of volunteer musicians in Contra Costa County, but also a valuable asset in the cultural life of the region. The orchestra’s professionally trained musicians continue to perform for audiences of all ages at nominal prices in concerts featuring the world’s great symphonic classics as well as popular music from Broadway and the movies.


Education
The Orchestra encourages music through concerts at schools, senior communities, farmers markets, and family shows. These often have moderate to free admission. The goal is for people to come and enjoy the music.
Innovation
The Orchestra also runs what they call an “Instrument Petting Zoo”. Its a great chance for kids to hear various instruments in a concert and then have the chance of trying them.
