Our Mission...

Through the diverse programming of standard orchestral literature as well as newer and lesser-known works, The Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra strives to enliven the spirit, inspire the imagination, cultivate musical appreciation and serve the educational and entertainment needs of Harford County, Maryland and surrounding areas.


Happy Holidays!

Thank you to all our patrons – our 38th Season is off to a wonderful start! In September, we starting offering reserved seating, visited Three Centuries of Mozart, received over $14,000 in grants (some of which helped purchase tom-toms, suspended cymbals, and Musser chimes), had our first ticket giveaway, and we got into the holiday spirit with some great singalongs! Have a safe and happy holiday season and we’ll see you March 14th for The Colorful Orchestra!

– on behalf of the Director and Musicians of the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra

Did you hear about our 38th Season opening concert?

If you didn’t make it to our October concert, here is what you missed, “I cannot begin to express my gratitude and pleasure for the gift of your music last Saturday evening. The concert was exquisite. The growth and maturation of the orchestra since it’s early beginnings is stunning … I could not believe I was in downtown Bel Air listening to Mozart!” (Joan Hodous, patron)
