The Jackson Symphony Orchestra (JSO)[1][2][3] is an American orchestra based in Jackson, Michigan. The orchestra's main performing venue is the Sheffer Music Hall of Jackson College. The orchestra's season typically consists of five orchestral concerts, a holiday concert, and a number of outreach concerts within the Jackson community.

The JSO has received significant financial support from Comerica Bank, including the 2007 donation of 16,000 ft of rehearsal space in downtown Jackson.

The Community Music School (JSO CMS)[edit]

Since 1991 the JSO runs the JSO Community Music School with the goals of providing private and group instruction on orchestral instruments for community residents and providing additional employment opportunities for orchestra members to attract and maintain quality players for the orchestra. The music school instructs over 200 students and maintains a faculty of 16 instructors, most of whom are orchestra members.
