The Parker Symphony Orchestra is Parker’s community orchestra, performing amazing classical music at the PACE Center. We were founded in 1994 as the South Suburban Community Orchestra, but with our first concert at the PACE Center in 2011, we officially became the Parker Symphony Orchestra. Our mission is to perform orchestral music that will educate, entertain and inspire the people of Parker and the surrounding Denver-area communities.
Highlights from past seasons at PACE include collaborations with the Legend High School choir, holiday concerts with the Parker Chorale, children’s concerts with the Young Voices of Colorado, a Veteran’s Day concert featuring the Colorado Mormon Chorale, and numerous professional guest soloists.
As a Parker Arts presenting partner, we offer musical programs designed to encourage the people of Parker to explore classical music in new ways, including listening to new styles and unfamiliar composers. We hope to inspire people of all ages to pick up and play music themselves. We also give local musicians a venue to perform with other music-lovers and we give youth groups, such as Young Voices of Colorado, the opportunity to perform with a full orchestra.
In addition to performances, the Parker Symphony Orchestra has an active outreach program that is proud to help support local school music programs. There are also several groups within the organization that perform for senior communities throughout the year.
2020-2021 marks our 27th season and we have several exciting concerts lined up including our tribute to Ellis Island immigrants in October, our May concert featuring Brahms’ Requiem, and our annual “Sounds of the Season” performance in December where proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit organization.
The PSO auditions new musicians in the summer and throughout the year.
The acoustics at the PACE Center are outstanding and every seat has a clear view of the stage. Our Parker audiences are as thrilled to have their very own orchestra in town, as we are to call Parker our home.
We look forward to offering another exciting year of great music and hope you will join us.
