About the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra

 

The Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, now in its third year under the dynamic baton of Music Director OCTAVIO MÁS-AROCAS, was founded in December 1930 by Eugene Weinberger, who formed the group under the premise of creating a collaborative organization that serves the community in many ways.

Since then, the Mansfield Symphony has grown from a fine regional orchestra into a professional orchestra with a rich musical legacy that includes such noted soloists as Jerome Hines, Frank Guarrera, Itzhak Perlman, Leonard Rose, Lorin Hollander, Peter Nero, and  Sarah Vaughn.

A Symphony Chorus was formed as a permanent part of the Mansfield Symphony Society in 1977, and two youth orchestra programs were added in 1984. 

In 1997, the Renaissance Theatre and the Mansfield Symphony merged, forming the not-for-profit umbrella organization now known as the Renaissance Performing Arts Association. Today, the Mansfield Symphony is one of the premier small-budget orchestras in the country, drawing not only talented local performers but also numerous young musicians from some of the greatest music schools in the country, including the Conservatory of Music at Oberlin College and the Cleveland Institute of Music.

The mission of the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra is to provide a quality symphonic experience that engages musicians, patrons, and youth alike.
