Symphony Orchestras

Main Content

For over one hundred years, the Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra (SISO)—composed of faculty and students of Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIU), as well as talented community members and area professionals—has brought outstanding music to Southern Illinois.

Younger performers also gain live concert experience through SIU's Civic Orchestra and Junior Orchestra, specifically designed to introduce little fingers to the world of orchestral performance. Additionally, the popular Klassics for Kids program educates school-aged children through interactive events that encourage listening skills and music appreciation.
