Symphony Orchestra Augusta debuted on May 23, 1954, under the baton of its founding director, Harry M. Jacobs. Setting the foundation for what would become a leading regional orchestra, three support groups followed: the Guild in 1957, the League in 1961 and Friends in 1981. With the addition of the Aiken Symphony Guild in 1986, the strong foundation was in place to allow SOA to fulfill its mission: to share the joy of great musical performance with our audience. Continuing to focus on excellence in live music performance, SOA shares its love through a variety of concert series: Pops! at the Bell - offers fan favorites from icons such as Olivia Newton John to the Music of Queen Spectacular and country favorites such as Wynonna Judd and Leann Rimes, to the music stages and screen. Columbia County Music Series - SOA's chamber series, features ensembles and guest artists from around the world in an intimate setting. Symphony Series - Patrons are provided impressive evenings filled with the sound of the full orchestra sharing familiar classics and thrilling contemporary works. Facebook: Twitter:
