Since its inception in 1912, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has served as the city’s cultural touchstone—connecting members of the artistic community through meaningful collaborations and performances. Today, the FWSO is a robust artistic organization with a 46-week long concert season, 71 full-time professional musicians, and an annual operating budget of over $15M.
Every year, the FWSO performs a full concert season as the principal resident company of Bass Performance Hall. The FWSO’s concert season consists of a Symphonic Series, a Pops Series, a Family Series, a Chamber Series, and Concerts in the Garden, the FWSO’s annual outdoor summer festival performed at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Additionally, the FWSO regularly plays educational concerts and engages in community outreach performances throughout North Texas, in order to bring the gift of music to all members of our community.
