Business of the Month

The Penfield Business Chamber is pleased to announce that the Penfield Symphony Orchestra has been named “Business of the Month” for October 2017.
The Penfield Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest community orchestras in Rochester, having begun in 1955 as the Penfield Community Orchestra. The organization was founded by a small group of dedicated musicians, at the suggestion of Robert Seidel and with the encouragement of Elmer Peck, former Penfield School District Superintendent and Principal, and Ruth Steese, former Director of Music for the Penfield Schools.
Penfield Symphony Orchestra’s mission is to perform and promote live symphonic music for Penfield and the Greater Rochester community and to provide an opportunity for highly-qualified dedicated musicians to perform in a community orchestra of the highest quality.
From the earliest years, PSO concerts have been enriched by talented soloists and groups, including members of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, winners of the Jo Amish Young Artist Competition, and school and community choirs. Suzuki string players from the Penfield schools have also performed at some holiday concerts. And for many years, the PSO presented an annual, free Picnic Pops concert, sponsored by the Town of Penfield.
As the PSO’s 50th Anniversary history booklet states, “Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the entire PSO family (audience, musicians, volunteers, office staff, board members and financial supporters) we are on very solid ground, both musically and financially. . .” That is still true today. With the community’s continued support, it will be true for many more years.
