Space Coast Orchestra
ABOUT THE SPACE COAST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The SCSO is a lively and passionate Central Florida orchestra comprised of professional musicians, music educators and mentored amateurs of exceptional ability. The Orchestra was formed by Conductor and Artistic Director Aaron T. Collins with a two-fold mission: to provide mentoring and performance opportunities for Florida’s finest young musicians as well as to provide professional concerts at genuinely affordable prices. The ultimate goal of the organization is to help ensure the symphonic tradition for the enjoyment of future generations.
33- year old Aaron T. Collins is garnering recognition for his achievements.
LEAD Brevard named the ambitious Collins one of their “4 under 40” Young
Professionals, the youngest-ever recipient of the honor. Space Coast Business
magazine listed him as one of Brevard’s “100 Most Admired Business people.”
Through his personal involvement with more than a dozen performing arts groups,
pioneering reciprocal ad program and social media cross promotions, Collins
has gained a reputation for generosity; championing other arts organizations
throughout Central Florida for the cultural enrichment of the community.
The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra performs in several very comfortable
venues in Brevard and Indian River counties, with advance general admission
tickets priced at just $20. School-aged children 18 years and under are admitted
free of charge, as are college students with a valid ID. In keeping with their
mission, the symphony provides a unique Symphony for Everyone ticketing
program, a “pay-what-you-can” option designed to provide substantially
discounted admission to any Space Coast Symphony concert.
Relying on a non-traditional orchestra model and a slim budget, the Space
Coast Symphony Orchestra is one of only 17 U.S. orchestras to perform yearround.
In addition to maintaining the Space Coast Symphony JAZZ Orchestra
and Space Coast Symphony Wind Orchestra, the non-profi t organization
provides numerous separate and free ensemble performances. More
