Owner description: Founded in 1945, the Spokane Symphony continues a long tradition as the largest and most active professional performing arts organization in the Inland Pacific Northwest.

A decent professional, if parochial orchestra with a pretentious and semi-competent conductor at the helm who has stayed too long. Be prepared for uneven performances, local soloists, and some interesting interpretative turns. The hall that they perform in is wonderful, however.

It's not the NY Philharmonic, or even the Seattle Symphony, but they bring in great guest artists to complement a solid group. I'm sure there are better out there, but I can't tell the difference. They also put on all sorts of shows, from Labor Day in the Park to Jazz Orchestra (oldest in America) and more.

This is a small orchestra that can produce some very nice music. Just don't expect Severance Hall, the Boston Pops and you won't be disappointed.

What a great symphony we have. Both Preu and Nakahara are energetic, innovative conductors that make going to the symphony fun and interesting. I love that they bring in local people dressed in star wars costumes for the john williams show or tell us interesting facts about the composers. Spokane is very fortunate to have them and all the talented musicians.
