Our Mission

The Meridian Symphony Association was founded to enhance the quality of life for the communities of East Mississippi. The Meridian Symphony Association accomplishes this by presenting the highest quality symphonic performances to a diverse audience while providing inspiring educational programs in the community and offering professional musicians a platform for artistic expression.

For the first time ever, we are excited to offer streaming of Opening Night, Peppermint Pops, & Duo Cintemani for patrons to enjoy from the comfort and safety of their homes.

#Meridian Sounds Amazing

There is so much to love about Meridian: good homes, good schools, delicious food, fabulous fashion, good jobs, strong community partners, high-level healthcare. Doesn't that sound amazing? Yes, Meridian Sounds Amazing! At the Meridian Symphony Association, we have come to realize that during the last sixty years the beautiful harmony between the old and new resounds in our city. 


 Our new community campaign, #MeridianSounds, is an initiative to unite Meridian's residents, businesses, and community organizations through one shared interest: celebration of our city.


To our restaurants, maybe #MeridianSoundsDelicious.

To our small business owners, maybe #MeridianSoundsSupportive.

To our community members, maybe #MeridianSoundsLikeHome.


To us, #MeridianSoundsAmazing!

We thank you for the last sixty incredible years, and we are thrilled to walk into the next sixty with you by our side.

"The MSO is a treasure for our community that requires our support! We all want the return on investment for our community that comes with economic development. Those living here and prospects looking to invest here want quality of life, including high quality entertainment like that of our symphony. It's a must-have for our community."
