The Akron Symphony Orchestra, formed in Akron, Ohio, is known locally and throughout the world for providing concerts and guest performances of the highest caliber. The orchestra was founded in 1949 by Mabel Lamborn Graham, who then spent the next several years diligently fundraising for its grand opening. Since opening with its first season in 1952, the Akron Symphony Orchestra has since grown to become one of Ohio's greatest symphony orchestras, as well as a tremendous educational resource for youth in the city of Akron. As of 2006, the Akron Symphony Orchestra has been under the direction of Christopher Wilkins, and continues to provide audiences of all ages with a unique cultural experience.
