The Starkville-MSU Symphony Association

Our Story

The Starkville– MSU Symphony Association was established March 2, 1969, in the home of David and Barbara Cornell. The premier concert was performed on November 24, 1969. The Symphony Chorus was organized in October 1972, and the first concert was performed February 10, 1973. The first one of our Programs for Children was presented October 2, 1975.

The Symphony Association is now in its 48th season. Starkville has the distinction of being one of the smallest communities in the United States to support a symphony orchestra for 47 years. We are where we are because many citizens of Starkville, Oktibbeha County, and the Golden Triangle region, recognizing the value of the symphony to our community, become members of the Symphony Association and support its programs.
