Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra

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.

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

– Stilian Kirov, Music Director

The remainder of our 2019-2020 season concerts have been canceled due to the spread of COVID-19. At this time, we are planning on a fantastic start to our 2020-2021 season in September, but will continue to monitor the situation as it develops. Click here for our latest COVID-19 response update.
