    MISSION STATEMENT

The Forest Hills Symphony Orchestra is a not-for-profit community symphony orchestra based in Queens County. It gives three annual concert performances consisting primarily of music from the standard classical symphonic repertoire with occasional symphonic pops selections.

The FHSO is made up of volunteer musicians who also contribute time and money toward the maintenance of the organization. Under the leadership of a professional conductor, the FHSO strives to maintain the highest quality of performance consistent with a volunteer orchestra.

The Forest Hills Symphony nurtures a tradition of classical music on the community level and functions as an integral part of the community in ways that its host community with prestigious cultural events, exposure to classical music, and publicity for the community. Through a standard performance series and via collaborative outreach and educational programs, the orchestra establishes important links among professional musicians, amateur musicians,  music students and the community at large.

Since our founding in 1964, our members have crossed all age and ethnic lines, and all occupations from professional to student to retiree. We offer members a chance to give solo performance es before looking outside the organization. We offer adults of varying musical abilities a place to improve their skills and create music within a positive social experience, that of community service. To this end we donate numerous concert tickets to local senior citizen organization, and agencies for the disabled. Two of our musicians have severe vision impairment.

Our mission is to make music: by our community and for our community.
