The Santa Monica High School Symphony Orchestra, fondly known as the “Samohi Symphony” and directed by Joni Swenson, is one of America’s finest high school orchestras.  Founded in 1903, it is a partner high school of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and was the first public high school ever to perform as part of the LA Phil’s “Sounds About Town” series at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
