Because of the variety of ensembles available for touring, thousands of Mississippians enjoy Mississippi Symphony Orchestra performances each year. Presenters may choose the Brass Quintet, Woodwind Quintet, String Quartet, Chamber Orchestra or full Orchestra. Programs can be designed from a large repertoire of classical and contemporary music, and popular Broadway tunes. Indoor and outdoor concerts are possible. The three small ensembles also do school visits called “Informances,” which are highly interactive and last about 40 minutes.
