Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra
The Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra (NFSO) is the region's premiere professional symphony, established in 1987. The NFSO performs in residence at the Mattie Kelly Fine & Performing Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, Florida. A custom orchestra shell, used for NFSO concerts at the center, provides patrons an optimum acoustical experience. The NFSO also performs at special events throughout the region, provides an extensive music education program for area youth, and has a vibrant guild of volunteers who support orchestra endeavors. The NFSO performs under the baton of Jeffrey Rink, who holds the Mattie Kelly Distinguished Endowed Teaching Chair in Orchestral Music and serves as the NFSO's full-time music director and conductor.
Ticket sales and season subscriptions cover only a portion of the NFSO's operating expenses, making contributed income vital for the continued excellence of the NFSO in its current season and beyond. The NFSO relies on private support, corporate support and grants for financial support. Your generous tax-deductible donation helps ensure bringing great music, guest artists and educational outreach to Northwest Florida. As a valued NFSO Conductor's Circle member, you receive a wide array of special benefits and privileges, designed to enhance your NFSO experience and provide insider's access to Northwest Florida's premiere professional orchestra.
