The mission of the Topeka Symphony Society is to encourage and cultivate appreciation and support for fine music in northeast Kansas by presenting performances of high quality and by providing educational and performance opportunities for youth.

The Topeka Symphony Orchestra was formed as a volunteer college and community orchestra in 1946 by Dr. Everett Fetter, Chairman of the Department of Music at Washburn University. It originated under the name of the Topeka Civic Symphony, and in 1980, officially became the Topeka Symphony Orchestra. Under the direction of Kyle Wiley Pickett, the Symphony has developed into a professional regional ensemble and has come to host a full seven-concert series, including classical, pop, holiday, and educational concerts. These developments have helped the Symphony to become an integral part of the Topeka community.
