Founded in 1923, the Fort Smith Symphony is one of the most outstanding orchestras in the State of Arkansas and enjoys wide regional support and sell-out concerts. The orchestra includes over 100 professional musicians traveling from Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee, and New York as well as Arkansas for rehearsals and concerts.

The orchestra is governed by a 24-member board of directors and has a full time staff of four. Under Music Director/Conductor John Jeter, the Symphony organization has grown in quality and outreach opportunities.

The 2015-2016 concert season is John Jeter’s nineteenth season as Music Director.

The orchestra consistently receives regional, national, and international recognition for its artistic achievements and its award-winning educational programs. As an example, the orchestra’s three CD/downloads on the nationally-known Naxos label comprise the first ever complete cycle of recorded symphonies of William Grant Still.

The Symphony has also been the subject of a full-length motion picture documentary and television pilot.
