The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to the proposition that classical music can enrich and transform lives. That is why we are very pleased to offer you exciting, moving and beautiful music. It is also why we remain committed to expanding the educational programs we offer to children in our region. Last year more than 25,000 children benefited from our music programs, and this year we will reach even more. And finally, it is why we continue to build strong relationships with other music and cultural organizations in our region. We believe collaboration makes all organizations, and our community, stronger.

Join us for a new beginning and a new sound with our new Music Director, Yaniv Dinur! We have an exciting 2017-2018 season planned for you! Details at
