The mission of the Corona Symphony Orchestra, founded in 2008 by Executive Director Don Kindred, is to bring the richness of live orchestral music to the people of the Inland Empire and to represent Corona and the region with musical excellence as one of its premier performing ensembles.

Now, CSO is reaching out to the youth of Corona with the Corona Symphony Conservatory.

The CSC will begin classes in September. But before that, the students of Corona’s after-school Youth String Orchestra at Wilson Elementary School will perform in the Summer Concert. Mickey Fruchter and Lori Bonner, who founded the program with Dr. Karen Hall, have joined with CSO to create CSC. The students will be sharing the stage with not only some of the best musicians Corona has to offer, but also Corona City Council’s own Dick Haley, who will be narrating the symphony’s performance of “Peter and the Wolf.”
