Narragansett Bay Symphony

Our Mission

Narragansett Bay Symphony Community Orchestra strives to share live classical music with our communities at little or no cost, to promote music education, enrich the cultural life of our region, and to provide the opportunity for participants to continue a life long study of music.

Our Vision

The vision of the Narragansett Bay Symphony is to develop a dynamic presence in our communities through superb performances of classical music.

To achieve this vision, we will:
• Constantly search for new and effective ways to reach the communities we serve, including educational programming;
• Work to perform with the highest level of musicianship we can achieve; and
• Maintain a spirit of friendship, acceptance and support within the orchestra.
