About the Westlake Village Symphony

The Westlake Village Symphony is a nonprofit orchestra comprised of community members and local music professionals with a common goal of providing exposure to the arts through concerts and educational programs.


The Westlake Village Symphony began as the Amgen Orchestra, founded in 2006 by a group of local musicians and Amgen employees with varying musical backgrounds and training. Later, the orchestra joined the Pacific Pearl Music Association (PPMA). In 2013, the ensemble was renamed to the Westlake Village Symphony (WVS) to reflect its increasingly diverse repertoire and visibility within the community, and in 2016, WVS became an independent 501c nonprofit organization.


The Westlake Village Symphony rehearses on Wednesday evenings at United Methodist Church in Westlake Village, CA. If you are an orchestral musician looking for an ensemble with which to perform great orchestral repertoire, please click here for information on how to join us.
