Our mission is to maintain and develop a professional symphony orchestra that produces performances of high artistic quality, that educates and entertains audiences of all ages, that expands and develops our audiences; and to sponsor related programs and concerts that enhance the musical life of the region we serve.

Today, the SSO is the largest Massachusetts symphony outside of Boston. It consists of over 80 musicians from the NE region of the United States and Canada, and holds many performances in a given season – as either the full orchestra or in ensemble formats.

The Springfield Symphony Orchestra is the parent organization of two youth orchestras – the Springfield Youth Sinfonia (formally Young Person’s Philharmonia) and the Springfield Youth Orchestra (formally Young Person’s Symphony).  Both of these ensembles offer young musicians a chance to play in a full orchestra, an option not offered in many schools.

Temenos is an off-the-grid, non-denominational retreat center located on Mount Mineral, in Shutesbury, about a half hour northeast of Amherst, Massachusetts. The name Temenos is a Greek word meaning the sacred space surrounding an altar, temple or shrine.  Carl Jung used this same word to refer to one’s interior space, where soul-making takes place.  Here at Temenos we remember our own sacredness, as we immerse ourselves in the quiet of the deep forest, and embrace with respect, all the woodland inhabitants within this naturally occurring temenos.
