Welcome to the FSO  
The 2013-2014 Season

The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra has emerged over the years as one of the finest regional, professional orchestras in the country. Hailed as "the pride of Fairfax County," the orchestra’s mission is to “explore and present the symphonic repertoire, both traditional and modern, for the diverse audiences of the Northern Virginia region while building the musicians and audiences of the future through education and outreach programs."

Rave Reviews

The FSO 2013-2014 season opener on September 21st won a stunning review from the Washington Post.

"Do you need a huge orchestra to make huge music? The answer — to judge by the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra’s larger-than-life performance at George Mason University on Saturday night — is an emphatic no."

"Under the baton of music director Christopher Zimmerman, this orchestra has been punching well above its weight for several years now, and its season-opening concert — which paired two of Aaron Copland’s colorful “American” works with the pulse-racing fury of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony — proved to be an evening of such visceral, spectacular music-making that it won a standing ovation from the packed house."



"Celegrating Diversity Through Music" is the headline of a feature in the Connection Newspapers about the inspiring bi-lingual outreach program with Ricardo Morales.

"With grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Arts Council of Fairfax County, the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra (FSO) will be presenting bi-lingual master classes and outreach presentations at various Fairfax County venues in the coming weeks. What is unique about the FSO English and Spanish language presentations is that they will be presented by Philadelphia Orchestra principal clarinet, Ricardo Morales. According to the US Census, the Fairfax County population includes about 16 percent who identified as Hispanic."



The 2013-2014 season was an amazing journey. World premieres met the great classics of the repertoire. Chamber works came into our season and brought an entirely new sound to the stage and to our audiences. Now 2014-2015 is just around the corner and subscriptions are waiting. Don't miss a moment!

The FSO welcomes Pops Conductor Luke Frazier into the fold for a series of concerts guaranteed to set your feet to moving and your mind to work.
