About the Island Symphony Orchestra:
The Island Symphony Orchestra (ISO) is a non-profit, all-volunteer, Long Island-wide orchestra whose talented members have ranged in age from their 30's...to their 90's!
The group was originally founded in 1971 by Paul Rudoff as the Island Senior Citizens' Orchestra, with the original mission to provide a way for retired teachers and other senior amateur and professional musicians to maintain their musical skills in an orchestral setting.
Today the ISO has evolved beyond its original Senior focus, growing to approximately 60 active members with varying ages, backgrounds and musical abilities. Each has different reasons for playing in the orchestra, However all have a love of the standard classical repertoire.
