The Grossmont Symphony Orchestra (GSO), and Master Chorale (GMC), are East County's answer to quality classical music performances. Under the musical direction of Randall Tweed, the seventy-five member orchestral and fifty member choral ensembles are comprised of music and non-music majors, music teachers, and talented musicians from the community.
“Music . . . in service to our community” continues the theme of the 2014-2015 performance season of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra (GSO) & Master Chorale (GMC), which finds our outstanding ensembles performing in venues throughout San Diego County. To service the needs of our academic & cultural audiences, we offer a vast array of literature—Orchestral, Ballet, Choral & Chamber music; from Purcell to Tchaikovsky to Liebermann, in venues from School to Church, from El Cajon to San Diego—Grossmont is performing near you . . . in service to our community!
The new performance season also offers two core ensembles within the GSO: the Grossmont Symphony String Quartet (GSSQ) and Woodwind Quintet (GSWQ). All ensembles perform a season of varied and challenging repertoire. Based at Grossmont College, the ensembles serve the cultural enrichment of not only San Diego's East County, but the county at large.
