The Rock Hill Symphony Orchestra’s mission is to inspire, engage, and enrich the lives of community members with the transformative power of symphonic music through excellence in live performance, educational programs, and community activities.
The Rock Hill Symphony was established in 2017 by a group of musicians and supporters in Rock Hill, South Carolina and serves all of York County. RHSO is a fully professional orchestra made up of some of the finest players from throughout the region. In 2018, the Board of Directors appointed Dr. David Rudge as the Symphony's Music Director and Conductor. Rock Hill Symphony is a tax exempt, nonprofit 501c3 organization.
The Rock Hill Symphony is committed to developing and nurturing partnerships in communities throughout Rock Hill and York County. We seek to provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to actively participate in the life of the Symphony. The Maestro and musicians from the orchestra are visiting local schools to speak with and perform for students as well as give masterclasses for young musicians at local high schools. RHSO will also be offering special Family Concerts and outreach concerts at different locations in Rock Hill and York County.
