Monterey Symphony


The mission of the Monterey Symphony is to entertain and engage our community through musical performance and education.

The Big Idea

In the upcoming season, the Monterey Symphony will expand its Love Letter pops concerts to Salinas; bring nearly 5,000 students to hear the Symphony free of charge; participate in a state wide festival celebrating music written in the last five years; feature works by new composers focused on representation and social justice; and commit to increasing the wages of its musicians each subsequent year.

The Monterey County Symphony has a stellar history of providing a first class, professional performance for young people. We are very enthusiastic to see the symphony resurrect this program which necessarily was put on hold during the pandemic. It’s a huge, expensive commitment of money and time on the part of the symphony staff, musicians, and volunteers but their dedication to the youth of this county is to be commended.
