The Waterbury Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1938 to promote the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of symphonic and orchestral music. The vision for the future includes an ambitious educational program that includes a closer relationship with the Greater Waterbury Youth Symphony, in-school ensemble programs and educational concerts for Waterbury elementary school students and open rehearsals and master classes for area music students. Some of the programs have included a partnership with the Cheshire School System and the Cheshire Education Foundation to offer music students (middle and high school) master classes by instrument section, the inclusion of a professional WSO musician as a guest artist at their school Spring Concert, and a special Side-by-Side performance for the community. In 2006-2007, the WSO Brass Quintet also performed an extended residency program at Shepaug School through a partnership with the After School Arts Program.
