Arguably, Gwinnett Symphony is one of Gwinnett County’s best kept “secret” treasures. Beginning as a youth orchestra with nine students in 1997 and expanding to the present nearly 100 student members, the ensuing twenty plus years have also included the addition of six adult ensemble groups exceeding 250 musicians with about 20 concerts per season between them all.
Existing for the purpose of enriching the lives of youth and adults in our very diverse community through the power of music, the biggest challenge has been recognition and awareness in such a vast community.
In support of our community, and to get the word out about who we are and what we do; Gwinnett Symphony joined the Chamber in November of 2017. Our Chamber membership has opened the door to participating in networking programs provided by Gwinnettworking and BusinessAfterHours, as well as various Chamber-sponsored workshops and events including the recent Family Fest.
