About Us

Violin StradivariusThe Coachella Valley Symphony is made up of almost entirely of desert community residents. The 50+ piece orchestra offers a wide variety of classical and pops music, performing 4-6 concert events each season, a subscription series of four concerts and one or more benefit events.


It is the mission of the Coachella Valley Symphony to perpetuate live symphony music and to provide public performance venues for both youth and adult musicians. We provide symphonic music education to young emerging musicians, and we foster diversity among individuals and within music presentations.


CVS represents an organization that encourages the growth and development of community music programs that entertain, educate, and actively engage the diverse citizens of the Coachella Valley in music experiences intended to promote active learning and performing. Through our trio of programs, the Beginning Strings Conservatory (BSC), the Buddy Rogers Youth Symphony (BRYS), and the Coachella Valley Symphony (CVSymphony), we strive to provide opportunities for our patrons and performers to be actively engaged in music over a lifetime. Our performance programs have been purposely arranged to encourage members to continually transition from one program to another as one advances musically and as one matures in age.
