Stephens Performing Arts Center, the Symphony’s regular performance schedule consists of five classical concerts, a Pops concert, and Family Concerts. The Idaho State-Civic Symphony Association, governed by a 30-member volunteer board of directors with the assistance of the Executive Director, provides funding and support for both the orchestra’s performances and educational programs.
