The Connecticut Valley Symphony Orchestra is a non-profit Community Orchestra.

We present four concerts each season in the Greater Hartford area, performing works from all periods in a wide range of musical styles. The members of Hartford’s only community orchestra are serious amateurs who come from a broad spectrum of occupations.

The CVSO always welcomes new members, and is looking for experienced string players, especially for the first and second violin and viola sections. If you are interested in joining the orchestra, or would like any other information, click here to Contact the CVSO, or feel free to speak to any member after a concert. The CVSO offers the opportunity for a unique musical experience.

For auditions, we request that potential members play a short selection of your choosing, which demonstrates your mastery of the instrument, as well as preparing an orchestral excerpt below:

We are also looking for experienced players to join our brass section including: French Horn, Trumpet, and Trombone. If interested please contact us!
