Portland Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1923, the Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) is widely regarded as one of the top symphony orchestras of its size in the country.

The Symphony’s mission is to
serve our community by enriching lives through music.



The Portland Symphony Orchestra has been inspiring audiences since it made its debut almost a century ago. And while there’s little chance that today’s patrons will find a concert canceled because the hall’s custodian went fishing (as was the case in 1924) the PSO still resonates with a refrain that echoes far beyond the borders of our city and stage. That sound is grounded in our commitment to the world-class performance of exceptional musical experiences we invite you to share.

Music Director

Eckart Preu begins his position as Music Director with the 2019-20 concert season.




The range of skills and stories shared by PSO musicians are as rich and varied as the instruments they play. What unites them is the individual mastery of their talents and a commitment to harmonizing those gifts through the stirring power of symphonic music. That synthesis of sounds is colored by a spectrum of musical experience with other symphonies, chamber groups, opera and ballet orchestras, and more.
