Silicon Valley Symphony has become known as one of the finest community orchestras in the Bay Area.
Created in 2001, the orchestra performs to full-house audiences earning the reputation of sounding 'that close' to professional. Members of the orchestra are exceptional professional quality
musicians who donate their time and talent because of their passion for music. This being the Silicon Valley, they instead make their living as music teachers, engineers, programmers, lawyers
and many other professions.
The repertoire of SVS is always enjoyable and highly listenable.
The SVS performs popular orchestral classics, such as Pictures at an Exhibition, The Planets, New World Symphony; commissioned new works, such as Concerto for Horn
and Orchestra; some of the best know operatic arias, such as Largo Al Factotum from the “Barber of Seville,” and Glitter and Be Gay from “Candide;” and hallmark soloist works, such as the Sibelius Violin Concerto and the Poulenc Organ Concerto. Pieces are also often selected to be enjoyable to the young audience members as well, such as the William Tell Overture.
The SVS has featured and will continue to perform with some of the Bay
Area's finest soloists, including stars of Opera San Josť, the San Francisco Symphony, American Guild of Organists and some of the most promising young talent in Silicon Valley.
