About the Symphony

As the largest professional performing arts organization in the state, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra performs for more than 75,000 Mississippians each year at more than 120 concerts statewide. Many of our Selby and Richard McRae Foundation Bravo and Pops Series concerts are performed on our home stage in Thalia Mara Hall, while the Chamber Series is performed in intimate venues throughout Jackson. Special events and the popular Pepsi Pops at Old Trace Park on the Ross Barnett Reservoir are also a regular part of the season. The MSO tours statewide as a full orchestra, a chamber orchestra, and as one of three resident ensembles-Woodwind Quintet, Brass Quintet and String Quartet. Annual and bi-annual visits by the MSO to cities around the state include Vicksburg, Pascagoula, McComb, Brookhaven, and Poplarville. Other cities visited include Greenville, Greenwood, Canton, Columbus, Cleveland, Meridian and Hattiesburg.

Additionally, the MSO supports the Mississippi Symphony Youth Orchestras and an education program through which more than 800 school children receive daily instruction in violin, viola and cello. Over the years, the MSO has introduced such programs as our Children’s Concerts: full orchestra concerts performed annually for over 16,000 elementary school students, and Informances (lecture demonstrations in 120 school visits annually) by our Woodwind Quintet, Brass Quintet and String Quartet. The MSO also sponsors various festivals, competitions, and an annual week-long summer string camp for aspiring young musicians. Without these programs, young people would not be exposed to symphonic music.

BLT is thrilled to welcome the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra back to Brookhaven as part of The Haven Concert Series!
