COSMIC Symphony :: About



COSMIC Symphony is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in Maryland since 1995. As Southern Maryland's only community orchestra, COSMIC Symphony affords residents the opportunity to enjoy high-quality orchestral music during the fall, winter and spring without leaving Southern Maryland.  Performances are scheduled in Saint Mary’s and Calvert counties. 


COSMIC Symphony’s primary objective is to provide the Southern Maryland community with classical music performed by its own local musicians.  We create an enjoyable orchestral experience for a large cross-section of our community through the diversity of our musical selections.  Concerts include a family program, music for young adults, holiday favorites, and symphonic music for the serious concertgoers.  


No less important, COSMIC Symphony provides an invaluable service to our community of local professional, semi-professional and talented amateur musicians by creating a venue where they can perform.  These community musicians have a love of music and performance that has generated a committed family of players.  COSMIC is a wonderful mix of teachers, librarians, artists, engineers, computer scientists, stay-at-home parents, gifted high school students, and retirees – people from all walks of life.


COSMIC Symphony also aims to nurture young musicians.  An important group of our musicians represents the youth of Southern Maryland; several of our musicians are of high school age.  These exceptionally talented young musicians are mentored by our more experienced musicians as they continue to grow and learn.


Thanks for your support of the local arts!
