It is the mission of The Ottumwa Symphony Orchestra to inspire, enrich, educate and build community through the power of live music.
The Ottumwa Symphony Orchestra will provide quality orchestral music and will be an essential resource in Ottumwa’s and Iowa’s cultural, educational, economic and social development.
Dr. William LaRue Jones
Music Director and Conductor
“Nothing shines a spotlight on or unifies a community like the performing arts. There is no “us versus them” in the arts nor scorecard proclaiming who won or lost. It is teamwork in the finest sense. And nothing demonstrates that idea better or in a more enriching way than the Symphony Orchestra.”
