Orchestra Lumos (formerly Stamford Symphony)

Orchestra Lumos unites the passion and energy of the region’s most talented musicians to create exhilarating experiences for audiences from all walks of life. Formerly known as Stamford Symphony, they’re expanding in multiple dimensions—bringing you more of the music you love throughout Fairfield County.

They present and share exceptional musical experiences: awe-inspiring concerts with world-renowned soloists and family-friendly programs that surprise and delight all ages. They are also bringing more intimate performances in smaller spaces, hands-on education programs, and community presentations across the county.

The Palace Theatre in Stamford is their home base, but you can also join them from Greenwich to Bridgeport at your local library, school, museum, brewery, place of worship, or community venue. They’ll see you at the space that works best for you.

They wanted their name to better reflect who they are and are becoming. With a new footprint across Fairfield County, more performances, and much-enhanced educational offerings—all led by Music Director, Michael Stern—they needed a new name. Orchestra Lumos is all about shining a bright light on extraordinary music and musicians, radiating energy, engaging new audiences, and sharing new possibilities.

Play, Sing, Listen!The Education Fund of Orchestra Lumos, Play, Sing, Listen!, will ensure that all youth in our communities have access to high-quality music education opportunities that will encourage them to explore, appreciate, perform, and create music while nurturing important life skills including creativity, listening skills, problem-solving, and self-esteem.
