Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra

Looking to hear symphonic harmonies in the Glens Falls Region? Come see the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra!

Under the direction of Maestro Charles Peltz, the Symphony has been brought to the attention of the international music community.

For more than three decades, the Symphony has brought music to audiences in the Adirondack region with their concert subcription season from October through May on Sundays at 4 p.m., along with special performances throughout the year.

Currently, this professional orchestra has 49 performing members hailing from all over the Northeast.

The mission of the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra is to provide a musical experience that is professional, educational, and entertaining through live performance and community outreach.

From their concert programming to engaging the community, the Glens Falls Symphony is one of the region's most treasured musical establishments.


The orchestra was first formed by volunteer musicians as the Adirondack Concert Orchestra and then become the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra in 1983.

Hugh Allen Wilson was music director from 1984 to 1998 and Charles Peltz picked up the baton after a nationwide search in 2000.

Since 2000, the Symphony has featured revered artists such as pianist Sara Buechner and violinist Sarah Chang. Works composed by Joan Tower and Ezra Laderman were also premiered by the symphony in 2005 and 2012.
