It is the dedicated support of our entire community that enables us to do what we love to do:

Perform outstanding music for YOU, our audience.

The Symphony’s mission is to infuse cultural vibrancy into the Great Falls community through transformative music events and education programs. We are a cultural asset in North Central Montana that raises the quality of life for its citizens through outstanding performing arts programs.   

Our collective pursuit of artistic excellence in collaboration with cultural and civic partners demonstrates how much our community can achieve when we work together with local organizations and businesses.

There are many ways for individuals, families, and local businesses to support great music in our region.
