The Mid-Texas Symphony is our area’s only professional orchestra. For 42 years, Mid-Texas Symphony has and continues to engage, enrich, educate and entertain all communities in Central Texas with orchestral music.

We engage our community by offering the world’s greatest music by composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Bach.

Each season, 15,000 patrons and students experience a Mid-Texas Symphony concert.

Mid-Texas Symphony’s 2019-20 Season here! Tickets on sale now.

The new season sees the Mid-Texas Symphony connecting with the surrounding communities in new ways, featuring great guest artists and showcasing the wonderful talents of the orchestra through exceptional symphonic literature, old and new, and from different corners of the world. We are excited to share it with everyone.

The 2019-20 season features several guest artists including contralto Ana Maria Ugarte and violinist Eric Gratz. Ugarte has performed around the world as a soloist in many of the great oratorio and orchestral works including Vivaldi’s Gloria; Israel in Egypt by G. F. Handel, Duruflé’s Requiem and El Amor Brujo by Manuel de Falla. Gratz is known for his charismatic stage presence, intelligent musicianship and effortless technique and is described as “spellbinding…a disciplined musician beyond his years,” by the San Antonio Express-News. Other guest artists include the New Braunfels Gemischter Chor Harmonie, a children’s chorus from the Seguin-area, string students from Smithson Valley High School and local Suzuki students.
