Salisbury Symphony Orchestra

Outreach & Community

The arts have a huge impact on communities and are a kind of barometer for their health. In the case of the SSO, I believe its success has been partly due to the fact that Salisbury University and the greater community have both given a great deal to the orchestra.

A Hub of Culture and Learning

Beyond academic programs, Salisbury University offers something for people of all ages, from parents seeking enriching programs for their children, to local residents looking for things to do in the community, to retirees pursuing ways to keep learning.  

SU is home to galleries and museums, from the SU Art Galleries on campus and in downtown Salisbury, to the Perdue Museum of Business and Entrepreneurship, and the nationally recognized Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art. We have performing ensembles, including the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, Salisbury Pops, SU Jazz Ensemble, Salisbury and University Chorales, SU Dance Company, and Bobbi Biron Theatre Program. We also have hundreds of cultural and academic events annually that are open to the public, from lectures and readings, to exhibits and performing artists, to concerts and films.  

A number of University-affiliated institutes and centers also serve the community: Delmarva Public Radio, the Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning, the Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (PACE), the Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative (ESRGC), the Business, Economic and Community Development Network (BEACON), and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), just to name a few. SU and its students, faculty and staff are engaged with the community in so many ways. Help us make more of these efforts possible!  

Campaign Priorities & Initiatives

Through the Campaign for Salisbury University, we seek to:

  • Increase support for University-affiliated institutes and centers that serve the community.
  • Increase support for community engagement by students, faculty and staff.

SU Downtown Campus Expands
SU’s downtown presence took a major step forward when its Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative relocated to the city plaza. The ESRGC followed the SU Arts Galleries Downtown. The third entity will be SU’s Center for Entrepreneurship, slated to open in 2020. All are located in SU Downtown, the former Plaza Gallery Building, which was donated to SU in 2015.READ MORE
