The Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra was formed in 2006 to bring live orchestral music to Northern Dutchess County and the surrounding Hudson Valley area. The orchestra membership includes both professional musicians and talented youth musicians. The orchestra rehearses and performs at Rhinebeck High School and F.D. Roosevelt High School in Dutchess County, New York. The symphony board is committed to providing this cultural opportunity to area residents and especially to students in area school districts. Live orchestral music at movie theater prices is our goal.
