The Macomb Symphony Orchestra has been serving the community in and around Macomb County since 1974. They are a fully professional ensemble numbering 72 players that offers great music and great entertainment for your enjoyment and at a resonable price. They count on neighbors and friends to serve as our "sounding board." We are not sponsored by either Macomb Community College or the Macomb Center.

Part of the rich tradition of the Macomb Symphony Orchestra is the warm, enthusiastic and supportive connection it has always had with the community. The applause filling The Macomb Center is one measure of the strength and commitment of our audiences and the generous financial support of our corporate friends is another. The MSO has always relied on the support of music lovers. Ticket sales cover less than 50 percent of the Orchestra’s costs, the balance generously contributed by our friends in the community.
