Welcome to the
Billings Symphony

Orchestra & Chorale

Founded as the Billings Symphony Society in May of 1951, our organization’s mission is to enrich lives through music. Today that mission remains the driving force behind the Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale (BSO&C).

Each season, the BSO&C performs for tens of thousands people throughout south central and eastern Montana and northeastern Wyoming, and help introduce music to children, youth, adults, and seniors through Explore Music!, the BSO&C’s music education and community engagement program. The Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale is a non-profit organization, and would not be possible without your support.
