It's not that people don't like classical music.
It's that they don't have the chance to understand and to experience it.
-Gustavo Dudamel, L.A. Philharmonic


For more than 60 years, the Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra has provided the citizens of Burlington, Ottumwa, Mount Pleasant, and their surrounding communities with the opportunity to understand and experience classical music through rural outreach, educational opportunities, and quality musical performances. We are proud to offer concerts that are engaging and fulfilling for new listeners and seasoned veterans alike. In addition, the symphony offers free concerts and other educational outreach initiatives in communities throughout Southeast Iowa. We thank you for your support and hope to see you at one of our many performances this 2017-2018 season!
