Artistic Director and Conductor,
 Ulli Reiner
"Our mission is to make classical symphonic music accessible to fellow
performers and to audiences of Poway and its surrounding areas."


Offered through the Poway Unified School District Adult Education Department, our symphony orchestra, created in 2004 by orchestra founder, concertmaster and manager, Ulli Reiner, includes community members, professional musicians, high school students, music educators and retired musicians. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings and will be held at Twin Peaks Middle School.

The Poway Symphonette, a chamber orchestra created in January of 2009 by Ulli Reiner, was created for musicians that desire the smaller chamber orchestra ensemble experience. We specialize in music of the Baroque and Classical periods of music history and feature string players of all ages along with solo wind players from time to time on our concerts.  Our performances take place at the Lutheran Church of the Incarnation located on Espola Rd in Poway, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in Poway located on Pomerado Rd  and also at the beautiful Poway Center for the Performing Arts located on Titan Way on the campus of Poway High School. Weekly Symphonette rehearsals are held at Twin Peaks Middle School off of Tierra Bonita Road in Poway from 6:00-7:00pm in the Theater.

In December of 2014 the Poway Symphonette was invited and performed for the Advent Festival in Vienna, Austria.

In the summer of 2016 the Poway Symphonette travelled to Beijing, Xian and Shanghai, China to perform in three prestigious concert halls.

In the summer of 2018 the Poway Symphonette travelled with the Poway Community Choir and performed in the Czech Republic and Austria. 

In the summer of 2019 the Poway Symphonette will travel to Austria and was also invited to perform at the Salzburg Festival for a second year in a row.
