The Nutmeg Symphony Orchestra is a professional orchestra providing classical music concerts and musical services for residents of Greater Bristol, the Farmington Valley and Northwestern Connecticut.

The musicians are an integral part of the fabric of music making in Connecticut, playing in many Connecticut orchestras and chamber music groups. Many have private teaching studios. They are among the finest orchestra players in the state.

Marshall Brown, Music Director and Conductor, is a faculty member in the Hartt School Community Division and at the Hartford Conservatory. He is a trombonist with the Waterbury and Wallingford Symphony Orchestras. His principal conducting teachers include Harold Farberman and Charles Bruck. He has degrees from the Hartt School and the University of Michigan. Maestro Brown is the founding conductor of the Montgomery, AL Symphony Orchestra.

Bernard Lurie, Concertmaster, was Concertmaster of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and Connecticut Opera for many years and was Full Professor of Violin at the Hartt School. Maestro Lurie's retirement has been very active as he keeps a busy schedule filled with solo appearances and orchestra concerts. He is also Concertmaster of the New Britain Symphony Orchestra.

As "Connecticut's Musical Spice", the Nutmeg Symphony Orchestra collaborates with other music making organizations to strengthen the musical fabric of the communities we serve.

We invite you to join us for our 2015-2016 concert season.
