In the midst of the 2016 Alberta economic downturn, 35 forward-looking musicians banded together to form the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra. As of November 2016, the Roster is in excess of 50 players.
The orchestra hopes to satisfy a cultural desire among Albertans, regardless of where they live, for accessible programming of excellent Orchestral Music. We believe that the vast repertoire of Western Art Music should be accessible to all, and not only to urbanites who are fortunate to be immersed in thriving artistic and cultural scenes.

Classical music is sometimes considered elitist and snobbish. We aim to challenge and change this misconception. We think classical music is for everyone. Your favourite movie is filled with Classical masterpieces, light classics, opera gems, and of course, movie soundtracks written especially for each film (just think Star Wars or Indiana Jones). The RMSO endeavours to include selections from all genres of Orchestral Music in each of its concerts. We guarantee there is something for everyone.
