Who are we?

Led by acclaimed violinist, conductor and educator Mark Taylor, the 40+ adult and youth musicians who comprise the Rockbridge Symphony are talented area residents from all walks of life. In addition to a love of playing, the volunteer members share a commitment to providing the community with live classical music close to home.  To that end, they give three formal concerts a year (fall, winter and spring), as well as participate in special educational and fundraising events.
