Founded in 2004, the Stratford Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is a gem in Southwestern Ontario’s arts and culture landscape. With its mix of professional and community musicians drawn from across the province, we present a full program of concerts each year curated for Stratford’s thriving and diverse arts community. Join them for their 2023-2024 season, on now!
Enjoy the best of the Classical canon with performances in our Masterworks series. Whether you prefer the pastoral qualities of the Brahms Violin Concerto, or the heartwarming sounds of Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings, there is something for classical music lovers in our Masterworks series.
Repertoire for the orchestra is vast, and while most people immediately think of the towering figures of the 1800s such as Beethoven and Brahms, orchestral music is everywhere you go: movies, Broadway and even video games. If you want to check out the Stratford Symphony Orchestra, and leave with something you’ll be singing for weeks, these shows are for you!
SSO Special Guests
If these past few years have taught us anything, it is that life is a lot more fun with friends! This season we welcome The Sultans of String to a powerful concert named Walking Through Fire. As always, New Year’s is a chance for the SSO to invite you, our friends, for a concert to let loose, and have fun!
