The Walla Walla Symphony delights and challenges our community by providing live orchestral performances and opportunities for learning about music.

We will cultivate a growing appreciation for symphonic music in Walla Walla by attracting enthusiastic audiences to programs of the highest artistic quality and by providing wonderful experiences and deep and rich education programs for the benefit of the Walla Walla community.

We strive for inclusion, diversity, and equity as we support and promote orchestral music, artistry, and music education in our community. We bring these values into our planning, dialogue, decision-making, programming, outreach, staffing, assessments, and study of emerging new practices.

Who We Are:
The Walla Walla Symphony is committed to making our region a better place to live by awakening a passion for the arts in as many people as possible. With over a century’s experience training and developing countless generations of classical musicians and music lovers, we have been and continue to be a vital thread in the arts and cultural fabric of Walla Walla. As the oldest continually-operating symphony orchestra west of the Mississippi, we are the only arts organization in our community capable of providing world-class full symphonic and classical music experiences.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging:
We are committed to centering relationships with our communities as we work to build connections through music. We envision creating welcoming spaces that offer a sense of belonging where all are valued regardless of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, economic status, political affiliation, or education.  

We believe that orchestral music is more relevant and alive when it honors tradition while embracing new ideas.  We strive to work towards unraveling a history of exclusivity prevalent in classical music and we will continue our pursuit of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through learning, listening, and engaging. 

We recognize that, at present, neither the musicians, the audience, the board, nor the staff of the Walla Walla Symphony fully reflect the diversity that is present in our valley. We want to transform our relevance to the diverse communities we serve.
