The Mission of the Billings Symphony Orchestra and Chorale

Founded as the Billings Symphony Society in May of 1951, the organization’s mission is to enrich lives through music. Today that mission remains the driving force behind the Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale (BSO&C).

This season, Music Director Anne Harrigan, along with the 135+ members of the BSO&C will present an annual season from September through June, featuring six subscription concerts, Top Brass, a special chamber concert, two performances of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet, a New Year’s Eve concert, our annual Family Concerts, and our free Symphony in the Park concert.

Each season, the BSO&C performs for tens of thousands people throughout south central and eastern Montana and northeastern Wyoming, and help introduce music to children, youth, adults, and seniors through Explore Music!, the BSO&C’s music education and community engagement program.
