The Gainesville Orchestra’s mission is to entertain, enrich and educate a diverse and broad-based audience through the presentation of quality programs in traditional and contemporary repertoire. Music nourishes our souls, comforts our spirits and provides unique opportunities to come together.

The orchestra presents four concerts a year, including a children's concert at the end of the season.  Small groups from the orchestra perform workshop in public schools for students.  Maestro Evans Haile lectures from the podium providing humor and historical perspecitive to the music.
