In 1958, Paradise Recreation District Director Harvey Roth placed a notice in the Paradise News Press inviting local musicians to meet with him. He hoped to organize a symphony in our small town. Eight people responded to his request and the Paradise Community Orchestra was born.
Since that time, eight conductors have overseen the growing orchestra and Paradise Community Orchestra is now Paradise Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony now has a youth education program to teach the ridge’s aspiring young musicians to play stringed instruments.
The one thing that has not changed; however, is the commitment of the Paradise Symphony Orchestra to provide live symphonic music in our community. We hope you will join us!
