Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra 45 Monument Cir Indianapolis, Indiana 46204

The mission of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is to inspire, entertain, educate and challenge through innovative programs and symphonic music performed at the highest artistic level.

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1930 by German conductor Ferdinand Schaefer. Its inaugural performance was noted by Time Magazine. Through the years, the group of volunteer musicians who split the original ticket sales grew into a professional orchestra that performs hundreds of concerts each year at the historic Hilbert Circle Theatre and at Conner Prairie Living History Museum, as well as sites around the state.

The Circle Theatre opened in 1916 as one of the nation’s first grand movie palaces. After a detailed and extensive renovation, it reopened on October 12, 1984 as the home of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. It was generously endowed by Stephen and Tomisue Hilbert in December 1996 and was renamed the Hilbert Circle Theatre.

The Theatre’s intimate size and customized stage area create a superb venue for live performances. The hall is available for rental for your special event.
