Nova Vista Symphony


Nova Vista Symphony welcomes you to our 50th Anniversary Concert Season!

Anthony Quartuccio, Music Director, and Nova Vista Symphony announce our golden anniversary (1966-2016) with five concerts celebrating "A Season of Heroes."

We honor heroes of all kinds in each concert, and feature fantastic soloists such as Russell Hancock, piano; Richard Lin, violin; San Jose Symphonic Choir; Emmanuel Baptist Church Choir; and Robert Chien, violin (our 2015 Young Artist Competition winner)!


SPECIAL CONCERTS - Nova Vista will collaborate again with Leroy Kromm's San José Symphonic Choir for our Anniversary year. Join Nova Vista and the Choir for our annual Holiday Magic event in December. We will also perform a special concert Saturday evening, April 2 at Mission Santa Clara with the Choir, featuring Orff's Carmina Burana.
