The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra is one of the most successful orchestras in the United States, performing an impressive 200 concerts each year for an audience of more than 250,000 adults and children from all walks of life.
During the past 11 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, Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Southwestern Seminary Master Chorale and the Children’s Education Program of Bass Performance Hall.
The orchestra’s annual summer music festival, Concerts in the Garden, has grown to be one of the largest and most successful summer outdoor festival of its kind in Texas, attracting an annual audience of nearly 45,000.
The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra is a national leader in music. Adventures in Music, the Orchestra’s education and outreach program, inspires, educates and entertains more than 65,000 children through more than 100 engaging programs each year in Fort Worth and across the state of Texas.
The FWSO is also the only orchestra in Texas to participate in Carnegie Hall’s award-winning Communities LinkUP! program, a comprehensive music-literacy program serving all 6,000 Fort Worth fourth graders.
Recently released recordings include Sentimiento Latino with Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flores (Decca); the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra live at Carnegie Hall; Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E. Minor, Opus 64; a bilingual version (Spanish and English) of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf featuring actor Michael York; The Composers Voice, Volume I featuring the music of Gabriela Lena Frank and Kevin Puts; and a live concert with Texas’ own Asleep At The Wheel recorded at Bass Performance Hall.
The FWSO and all orchestra activities are governed by a volunteer board of directors and a 35-member executive committee.

The administrative staff, led by president Amy Adkins, consists of 30 top-notch professionals who manage an annual budget of $12 million, a 46-week concert season and a $28 million endowment.
