Nova Vista Symphony
Nova Vista Symphony in Sunnyvale
About the Nova Vista Symphony The Nova Vista Symphony, established in 1966, is comprised of more than 60 volunteer musicians of wide age range and ethnic background. The orchestra’s fourfold mission is: to make live classical music attractive and accessible to individuals and families at a reasonable price; to expose youngsters to classical music and educate tomorrow’s audiences; to provide an opportunity for musicians – talented but choosing careers other than music – to perform with a top quality orchestra; and to provide a showcase for local soloists and composers.
