More than Music

The Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra’s mission is to enrich our community through the power of music! For 86 years, our BSO team that consists of Staff, Board, Musicians, Advisory Council, Volunteers, Patrons and Sponsors, have achieved success. As stated by Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” This quote captures the teamwork that has enabled the BSO to serve the central valley with “More than Music”. We would like to express sincere appreciation to our team for their dedication, commitment and generosity. We couldn’t do it without you.

The 2018-2019 season will be another great year as we have enhanced the BSO’s audience experience. We are thrilled to provide Kern County with inspirational music and entertainment. Our conductor, Stilian Kirov is in his fourth year as Music Director of the BSO and has become a fast favorite among our community. We have six outstanding season concerts featuring world class soloists and our family favorite Pops Concert, Home for the Holidays in this year’s line up.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our concerts and here’s to another outstanding season!

– Stilian Kirov, Music Director
