Temecula Valley Symphony

Temecula Valley Symphony is the resident orchestra of Temecula and Southwest Riverside County. TVS is comprised of sixty dedicated and enthusiastic musicians from four counties, all of whom desire to participate in this growing regional symphony experience. The Symphony presents six ticketed concerts per season and performs at four additional outreach concerts. Each year the Symphony hosts a Young Artist Competition and selects outstanding concerto performers who receive cash awards and an opportunity to perform with TVS in concert. The Symphony also donates a large number of tickets to school music programs and under-served members of the community, special needs programs, homes for battered women and children, and senior centers, so as to provide them with an opportunity to attend a live symphonic concert.
