It is the mission of the Brockton Symphony Orchestra to enhance the cultural landscape and to collaborate with Brockton and the surrounding communities, providing quality, locally produced symphonic music. In pursuit of this mission, it is imperative that we strive to maintain a high level of visibility, presence, and accessibility to the community at large while stimulating and encouraging education in classical music and the opportunity for accomplished musicians of all ages to express their artistry.

The Brockton Symphony Orchestra began in 1925, born from the desire of local musicians to perform the symphonic repertoire together in their community. The Brockton Symphony Orchestra is considered one of the finest orchestras in the Greater Boston area, has been called "one of the region's classical jewels" by the Boston Globe, and is recognized as one of the leading community symphony orchestras in Massachusetts.

For nearly 100 years, the Brockton Symphony Orchestra has provided live, professional-level symphonic concerts to the greater Brockton community; taught and inspired children about music; and encouraged participation of local musicians and students. Brockton Symphony actively strives to enhance music education by performing with choruses and orchestras from local schools, and the annual Youth Competition encourages and rewards gifted young instrumentalists.

The Brockton Symphony has accompanied renowned soloists including Midori, Gil Shaham, Shlomo Mintz, Grant Johannesen, Leonard Rose, Julius Baker, and Eugene List. Soloists from the Boston Symphony have included Joseph Silverstein, Jules Eskin, John Ferrillo, Jacques Zoon, and Mike W. Roylance.
