Clinton Symphony Orchestra
The Mohawk Valley of Central New York has seen a recent decline in professional, classical, symphonic music programming. Our region is on the cusp of change and growth. The Clinton Symphony Orchestra of the Mohawk Valley, Inc. (aka the Clinton Symphony Orchestra, or CSOMV) seeks to be a part of a vibrant cultural community every growing area needs and deserves. Since the fall of 2011, there had not been a local professional symphony presenting concerts of classical music. Consequently, on June 3, 2014, local resident Dr. Roger Moore and Maestro Charles Schneider, Music Director for the Catskill Symphony and the Schenectady Symphony Orchestras, gathered a group of community leaders to engage in a conversation about forming a new professional symphony to serve the Mohawk Valley. The atmosphere at the meeting was positive and cautiously optimistic.
