The Sun Valley Summer Symphony is comprised of over 100 musicians from major orchestra throughout the United States and Canada.  Most of the orchestra musicians return year after year to assemble what Music Director Alasdair Neale calls an “all-star orchestra.”  Musicians hail from the San Francisco Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Houston Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Toronto Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra and many others.  They come to Sun Valley not only to perform with outstanding colleagues in a world-class venue, but also to play.  When not on stage, you may see Sun Valley Summer Symphony musicians hiking, cycling and fly-fishing.  They bring their families and friends and become a part of the Sun Valley community every summer.   Get to know the Sun Valley Summer Symphony musicians —  and if you see a familiar face at the grocery store or on a hike, be sure to say hello!
