The Parker Symphony Orchestra is a volunteer community orchestra that performs at the PACE center in Parker, Colorado from October to May. Founded in 1994 our 2021-22 season is our 28th year. Formerly the South Suburban Community Orchestra, we became Parker’s Orchestra in 2011. Our mission is to perform orchestral music that will educate, entertain and inspire the people of Parker and the surrounding Denver-area communities.
The PSO collaborates with a variety of musical organizations from the Legend High School choir to the Parker Chorale. In 2022 we will be performing the beautiful Brahms Requiem with the Colorado Saints Chorale.
With the exception of our Music Director, René Knetsch, and our Concertmaster, all of the musicians in the orchestra volunteer their time and talents. People wishing to audition to play in the orchestra can do so at our pre-season auditions in August or by signing up throughout the year. The musicians of the PSO come from a wide variety of backgrounds; music teachers, doctors, technicians, television producers and a variety of other occupations. They join together to offer musical programs designed to encourage the people of Parker to explore classical music in new ways. Our hope is that we will inspire our audiences to truly enjoy the classical music experience.
Due to the pandemic the PSO was unable to perform our 2020-2021 season. Now that things are opening up again, we are very excited to offer a season of Remembrance and Hope beginning with our Free October 15th concert. By offering a free concert at the beginning of the 2021-22 season we hope that more people and families will come to hear us play even if it is the first time they have ever been to a symphony concert.
The musicians of the PSO look forward to a great concert season with you.
