The Plainfield Symphony is composed of professional and amateur musicians dedicated to providing high quality performances of professional caliber to audiences in the greater Plainfield area.

What We Do

The Plainfield Symphony is offering a series of five regular subscription concerts in the 2002-2003 season. These concerts are held at the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church in the Crescent Area Historic District of Plainfield. The church, located at 716 Watchung Avenue (at East Seventh Street), boasts superb acoustics in an architecturally distinguished setting.

In addition to our schedule of performances, the Plainfield Symphony Society holds a number of annual fundraising events, including a brunch at the beginning of each season, receptions after each concert, and the special Between the Bars and Conductor's Circle receptions following the holiday and season finale concerts.

The Plainfield Symphony is a founding member of New Audiences for Plainfield, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting cultural and arts organizations and activities in Plainfield.
