Mission Statement

The mission of the PSO is to perform orchestral music that will educate, entertain, and inspire the people of Parker, Colorado and the surrounding communities.

Organization History

The Parker Symphony Orchestra is Parker's community orchestra, performing amazing classical music at the PACE Center. We were founded in 1994 as the South Suburban Community Orchestra, but with our first concert at the PACE Center in 2011, we officially became the Parker Symphony Orchestra.

Highlights from past seasons at PACE include collaborations with the Legend High School choir, holiday concerts with the Parker Chorale, children's concerts with the Young Voices of Colorado, a Veteran's Day concert featuring the Colorado Mormon Chorale, and numerous professional guest soloists.

As a Parker Arts presenting partner, we offer musical programs designed to encourage the people of Parker to explore classical music in new ways, including listening to new styles and unfamiliar composers. We hope to inspire people of all ages to pick up and play music themselves. We also give local musicians a venue to perform with other music-lovers and we give youth groups, such as Young Voices of Colorado, the opportunity to perform with a full orchestra.

In addition to performances, the Parker Symphony Orchestra has an active outreach program that is proud to help support local school music programs. There are also several groups within the organization that perform for senior communities throughout the year.
