Founded in 2005, Gwinnett Symphony Orchestra (GSO) is under the direction of Robert Trocina. GSO is comprised of approximately 90 musicians from all walks of life from Gwinnett and the surrounding region. GSO is made up of primarily volunteer musicians with a few key professional musicians. Many of these musicians have been loyal members of the symphony since its inception. Members include music faculty from New School of Music, local school music programs and universities, and community musicians. GSO performs multiple concerts per season including masterworks, family concerts, sensory friendly concerts, young people’s concerts and combined concerts with our symphony chorus, jazz orchestra and Northeast Atlanta Ballet. GSO sponsors a youth piano concerto competition and hosts international conductors annually. Membership in GSO is by audition with the conductor or by invitation. Interested musicians may enquire about membership throughout the year based on chair availability.
