Fort Bend symphony Orchestra
The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra founded in 1992 as a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization committed to enriching lives through the shared experience of live symphonic music that supports local community musicians and artists.
Throughout the years the mission has been to maintain a full size orchestra, complete with brass, woodwinds, strings, and percussion; and to present volunteer members ranging in age from high school students to senior adults to bring concerts to the Fort Bend Area.
Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra will celebrate their Silver Jubilee by bringing an exciting 25th season with a wide array of local guest artists, the premier of two commissions culminating in the largest masterwork the orchestra has ever performed, and a vision to become an arts organization leading the way with innovation, education, and outreach.
