“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.  Music is the soil in which the spirit lives, thinks, and invents.”  Ludwig van Beethoven

 The Jackson Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of Stephen Osmond and provides performance, listening, and learning opportunities in a variety of venues.
