Shoals Symphony at UNA
The Shoals Symphony at UNA is a partnership organization under the auspices of the University of North Alabama and supported by the Shoals Symphony Association. The Association is funded by the generosity of individual and corporate sponsors,contributions by alumni and friends, grants, and ticket sales. The Symphony encompasses the perfect balance of UNA faculty and rising students (majors and non-majors), as well as area professional musicians. Dedicated, enthusiastic musicians are selected by open audition.
Every college student in the Shoals Symphony at UNA receives a performance award to help pay tuition. The Shoals Symphony Association is dedicated to encouraging area students through the development of the UNA Honors Orchestra (9-12 grades) and the UNA Peery Center String Project (all ages).
The Shoals Symphony at UNA began as a group of local players wanting to make music together. It has grown and evolved into a semi-professional regional orchestra and is recognized as such by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
