About Us

Welcome to the firelands Symphony orchestra!

Carl Topilow, Music Director and Conductor

The Firelands Symphony Orchestra (FSO) was founded in 1992 as a non-profit organization after nearly a decade as a growing chamber orchestra. ln May of 2008, our current Music Director and Conductor Carl Topilow joined the FSO. Since that time, we have grown tremendously in quality, subscriptions, attendance, and exposure to world-class soloists. The Firelands Symphony Orchestra’s mission is “enriching lives through music” and we live that mission with every single event and service we offer: from our main season concerts, guest ensembles, chorale concerts, private music lessons, and local community and education outreach.

MISSION

Enriching lives through music.

VISION

The FSO will inspire and unite our community and become the premier organization providing live quality music in North Central Ohio through concerts and other performances, music education, and community engagement.

Values

As we seek to achieve our mission and vision, we will strictly adhere to our core values: to remain fiscally sound, be well managed and good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, embrace diversity and inclusiveness, and adhere to the highest ethical standards.
