Artist / Program Description
The Rockford Symphony Orchestra (RSO) has delighted audiences with performances of the highest quality for more than seven decades. From its beginnings as a volunteer organization to its present status as a professional, award-winning regional symphony, the RSO has become an important cultural resource. Music Director and Conductor, Steven Larsen, has led the symphony since 1991. Under his direction, the RSO has grown artistically, expanding its repertoire and attracting high caliber performers. RSO performances feature popular, jazz, and Broadway artists, as well as works from the core classical repertoire and compositions written by American contemporaries. Nationally known guest artists frequently serve as soloists for RSO concerts, adding tremendous variety and diversity to each season.
Programming includes selections from the season’s repertoire. Specific programs and soloist information is available from the Rockford Symphony Orchestra office or on the RSO website. Additional offerings include Pops concerts and ensemble performances.
