Symphony Staff

Symphony Staff

The orchestra is supported by a dedicated board, office staff and many wonderful volunteers. Their tireless efforts help to make each performance an enjoyable and enriching experience for our patrons and the city of Federal Way.

The Symphony is dependent upon members of the community who volunteer their time to support the operations of the orchestra. From Board members, to fund raisers, to ticket takers, to helping in our office, volunteers make an enormous contribution. Many thanks.
