South Bend Symphony Orchestra
The South Bend Symphony Orchestra began in 1932 as an all-volunteer organization. Now in its 85th season, it has become a well-recognized, professional Midwestern orchestra and is well on its way to being “South Bend’s” orchestra.
The South Bend Symphony performs 20 concerts annually: including 5 Jack M. Champaigne Masterworks Series concerts, 3 KeyBank Pops Series concerts, 3 June H. Edwards Mosaic Series concerts, Home for the Holidays concerts, the MLK Day Celebration Concert, 4 Shein Family Young People’s Discovery concerts, a free outdoor summer concert, and a newly-added family concert. In addition to the Season’s performances, the SBSO is incredibly active in the community with over 55 free community performances and events in schools, libraries, museums, and retirement homes.
