Welcome to the FSO  
The 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 season opener won another stunning review from the Washington Post.

"The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra gave a grand 58th season opener on Saturday evening by featuring a guest soloist who inspired an artful and lyrical collaboration at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts."

"Making his Washington-area debut with Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 16, Alexander Schimpf displayed a remarkable ability to generate an expressive singing tone out of the Steinway grand. From gentle melodies and gossamer arpeggios to swifter passages and chords that were carefully articulated, the pianist ensured that every note he played was deliberate yet sonorous, and he savored each sound as one relishes a bit of melting chocolate in the mouth."
