The White Mountain Symphony Orchestra aspires to excellence in performance of a wide variety of orchestral music from all eras and a diversity of composers. Our performance repertoire has included full orchestral works, chamber music, concertos and collaborative performances with choirs and dance troupes. Among our most important activities is the annual “Music Is…” program introducing the 4th and 5th grade students of Navajo and Apache counties to the world of orchestral music. Each season we aspire to offer new opportunities and experiences for enjoying and sharing orchestral music with the White Mountains. For example, this year we will be introducing the students to "A March Through Time," marches throughout the centuries by a variety of composers.
The White Mountain Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1979 as the Silver Creek Symphony Orchestra and continues to grow and succeed. The key to this success is the commitment of our musicians to their individual musicianship and to the orchestra. In January 2000 the Silver Creek Symphony became an independent 501 c3 nonprofit corporation named the Silver Creek Regional Symphony. On September 2, 2004, the members of the orchestra voted to change the name to the White Mountain Symphony Orchestra to more accurately reflect the area that the orchestra serves.
