The Gary Historical & Cultural Society, Inc. is the proud sponsor of The Gary Civic Symphony Orchestra - Gary, Indiana's only symphony. Often called a "miracle orchestra", the Gary Civic Symphony had its roots over 60 years ago. When the vast majority of its musicians and conductors left Gary in the 1970's to start a new orchestra, many just gave up hope that the Gary orchestra would survive.
But it did, and through years of struggle, and sacrifice, and little to no budget, the Orchestra has now grown to over 50 musicians. The determination to "not let Gary down" was what saw GCSO through the early rough times. The administration of Richard G. Hatcher provided needed support to begin their re-growth.
The Gary Civic Symphony keeps growing and making us proud!  For more information, the GSCO website is:  -or-  send an e-mail to:
