Meet The Musicians

The Idaho State-Civic Symphony is unique in it's composition, with ISU faculty members and students joining together with community members to create beautiful music for our community!  The Idaho State-Civic Symphony Association exists in large part to support the endeavors of our inspiring musicians by supporting concert productions and offering scholarships to ISU music students.  Please take a moment to meet our musicians!
