The orchestra has traditionally been known by the acronym FOK, standing for Film-Opera-Koncert, reflecting the orchestra's fields of activity as envisioned by its founder. When the city of Prague made the orchestra its official concert ensemble in 1952, it retained the acronym, giving it the official title Symphony Orchestra of the Capital City of Prague - FOK. The orchestra has travelled extensively in Europe, Japan, and the United States, and has recorded for many different labels.

Since 2006, the orchestra's chief conductor is Jiří Kout.
