Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra

Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra

Stuart Malina, Music Director

The Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra can be traced back to the early 1930s when a group of dedicated and resourceful music lovers decided, against all odds, to form a symphony in the city of Harrisburg. The country was in the throes of the Great Depression, but the group forged ahead, giving their first concert at William Penn High School in Harrisburg on March 19, 1931. The conductor on that occasion was George King Raudenbush, who was to become the orchestra’s first music director. By the end of 1931 the orchestra had moved its concerts to the newly-opened Forum Auditorium in the Education Building, part of the Capitol Complex, where it still performs to this day. The 1931-32 season included four concerts. The cost of a subscription: $2.00!

The Harrisburg Symphony is governed by a 28-member Board of Directors. The current Board Chairman is Joe Lewin. The Symphony is enthusiastically supported in its fund raising efforts by the Harrisburg Symphony Society under the able direction of their president, Julie Sullivan.
