The Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra (NFSO) is the Emerald Coast's premier, fully-professional orchestra - since 1987! The NFSO performs in residence at the magnificent $30 million Mattie Kelly Fine & Performing Arts Center, located at 100 College Boulevard East, Niceville, Florida. NFSO concerts are held in the center's 1,650 mainstage theater where a custom orchestra shell provides the optimum in acoustics for symphony patrons.
The NFSO is a non-profit organization operated under the auspices of Northwest Florida State College. The NFSO relies on tax-deductible donations, corporate underwriting and season subscriptions to continue the orchestra's musical excellence and the symphony's numerous long-standing educational endeavors for youth. Tax-deductible donations are administered through the Northwest Florida State College Foundation, a 501 © (3) organization.
The NFSO offers the highest quality of standard and new orchestral repertoire to the growing and diverse population of Northwest Florida. The NFSO is committed to making artistically interpretive performances widely available to both arts patrons and those new to the orchestral experience. Through the artistry of its professional musicians, dynamic performance venues, and exhilarating performances, the NFSO, in its 29-year history, has become one of the most important musical/arts organizations along the Gulf Coast region.
