A proud advocate of the arts in his community, Toledo, Ohio, resident Steve Papadimos has shown resolve in promoting music and performing arts through his support of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. With the help of Steven Papadimos and other symphony patrons, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra maintains a diverse program of events and educational efforts that continues each season.

Incorporated in 1951, the Toledo Symphony began as a small group of part-time players, numbering only 22. Growing over time to include nearly 80 full-time musicians, the orchestra has had the opportunity to host a variety of guest musicians and conductors, including the likes of cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Sarah Chang, and conductor Grant Llewellyn.

In addition to its cast of polished performers, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra has established the Toledo Symphony School of Music, where families and children can pursue private lessons in the Suzuki Method and group classes to enrich students’ learning. The Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestra also provides an opportunity for talented young students to come together and perform in a professional setting.

Relying on the support of its patrons, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra seeks to continue its practice of the performing arts and enhance the cultural atmosphere of northeastern Ohio through music and music education.
