The Berkshire Symphony is comprised of Williams College students, distinguished Artist Associates, and area professionals. Throughout the year, students and teachers work hand in hand in an environment that honors hard work and fosters respect. The programs each year expose the students to a broad range of symphonic repertoire. With musical selections spanning four centuries, and under the guidance of our excellent faculty, students experience ensemble playing on a level rarely offered in comparable educational settings.
