Audition

 JOIN FBSO and FBSOC


The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra and Chorus include people of all ages. Some are advanced students who strive for an opportunity to play and sing with more experienced musicians; others are full-time professionals. All are hard working musicians who donate their time and talents to bring quality orchestral music to Fort Bend County--and have a great time doing so!
