Our mission is to provide performers and the public of the North Olympic Peninsula an opportunity to enjoy, participate in, and grow with the enriching experience of quality, live music.
The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1932 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The Orchestra began with a few fiddlers and horn players performing light opera and Sousa marches in each other’s homes and has become today’s orchestra consisting of over 80 volunteer musicians.
The symphony is known for its ambitious yearly schedule of Five Main-stage Concerts, Three Chamber Music Concerts, and a Pops Concert. Additionally, PASO reaches out to the community with educational programs.
