The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1932 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The Orchestra began with a few fiddlers and horn players performing light opera and Sousa marches in each other’s homes and has become today’s award-winning orchestra consisting of ±80 volunteer musicians.
The symphony is led by Adam Stern, Music Director and Conductor, in an ambitious concert schedule, outreach programs and international tours.

To provide performers and the public of the North Olympic Peninsula an opportunity to enjoy, participate in, and grow through the enriching experience of quality, live music.
