Making Beautiful Music --- AND One Very Special Guest! The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has transcended the dream held by its founders in 1912 when they assembled a group of musicians to create what is now one of the community’s greatest assets. FWSO will be the first ever full 65 piece orchestra to play on the Temple Theater stage. Since its beginnings, the orchestra has been an essential thread in the city’s cultural fabric and the very foundation of Fort Worth’s performing arts. Today, the FWSO is one of the most successful orchestras in the United States, performing an impressive 200 concerts each year for an audience of 250,000 adults and children from all walks of life. Over the last 15 seasons, Music Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya has transformed the FWSO into an ensemble that is recognized and admired the world over for its artistic excellence and commitment to community engagement. As the principal resident company of the acoustically superb Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall, the orchestra performs a broad range of symphonic and pops concerts. The FWSO is admired nationally for the strength and uniqueness of its collaborations with other organizations including the Fort Worth Opera, Texas Ballet Theater, Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the Children's Education Program of Bass Performance Hall, and various local professional choruses. The orchestra’s annual summer music festival, Concerts in the Garden, has grown to be one of the largest and most successful summer outdoor festivals of its kind in Texas, attracting an annual audience of 40,000. On October 26th, the orchestra will be performing their educational program at the Temple Theater, as part of our Schooltime Series, for an audience of 1,800 students.
