The North Worcester County Symphony Orchestra was founded in 2021 on the principles of access to classical, pop, jazz, musical theater, and other genres of music to culturally enrich the quality of life in the Twin City area and surrounding region. The principal goal of the organization is to make this music accessible to everyone at an affordable cost.
At the beginning of the academic year, Fitchburg State and the North Worcester County Symphony Orchestra announced the start of a partnership between the school’s musical ensembles and the regional orchestra. The partnership between the two groups was created to offer the public more performances each season that include a wider variety of musical genres and feature more musicians.
