The Folsom Lake Symphony

The mission of the Folsom Lake Symphony is to inspire and create community through the power of symphonic music.

Who we are:
The Folsom Lake Symphony is proud to serve as the premier orchestra for Folsom and its surrounding communities, as well as the resident orchestra at the Harris Center for the Arts. Thanks to the leadership of Maestro Peter Jaffe, over 70 dedicated musicians and our hard-working volunteers, our symphonic music makes a positive impact on a range of community groups, from the young to the young at heart.
What we do:
The Folsom Lake Symphony presents a wide range of orchestra literature through ten performances each season and offers a variety of community enrichment programs, including:

  • An annual opportunity for families to attend a fun and educational classical performance and participate in a children’s instrument “petting zoo.”
  • School performances by Symphony musicians and guest artists to help augment important arts education that has been lost due to budget cuts.
  • Senior community engagement efforts, including in-residence ensemble performances and craft activities to symphony music.
  • Two free al fresco concerts for the residents of the Folsom Lake community.
