The Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg

The Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg (VSSGW) is a proud supporter of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra (VSO), one of Virginia’s top cultural institutions. Directed by internationally acclaimed director, JoAnn Falletta, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra has distinguished itself across the country and was recently elevated to national status upon being admitted to the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians.

The VSSGW is dedicated to enhancing the rich cultural life of Greater Williamsburg and Hampton Roads through support of this wonderful orchestra. VSO members are active in attending concerts, assisting with regional outreach activities, fundraising, pre-concert dinners, receptions and special events.
