With incredible soloists and one of the greatest symphonies ever written, we guarantee you'll have a "Fantastique" time at our upcoming concert! We are proud to feature our 2019 Young Artist Competition Winner, John Flannery, a junior from Washington, Iowa. He will be performing the first movement of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major. Regarded as one of the greatest symphonies from the romantic era, Hector Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique” is a vivid and dramatic look at life and death. To complete the set, the orchestra will perform a new work by Robert Tindle, featuring the 2019 Guest Artist in Residence, trumpeter and member of the Dallas Brass, Buddy Deshler. Remember, all students are free!

"our premier regional orchestra"


It's not that people don't like classical music.
It's that they don't have the chance to understand and to experience it.
-Gustavo Dudamel, L.A. Philharmonic
