Mid-Texas Symphony Guild
The Mid-Texas Symphony Guild was founded as part of the Mid-Texas Symphony Society in 1978 by Anita Windecker, who was then a professor of Music at Texas Lutheran College. The objective of the MTS Society is to bring orchestral music to the Seguin and New Braunfels areas by sponsoring the Mid-Texas Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra performs five concerts this season - three in Seguin, and two in New Braunfels. The other major event of the season is a Big Band fundraiser at the New Braunfels Civic and Convention Center.
The MTS Guild is the support organization for the orchestra. Members of the Guild take an active role in fund-raising, in sponsoring educational programs and in providing hospitality for the orchestra. Although the Guild has its own bylaws and guidelines, it operates under the direction of the MTS Society Board.
There are two chapters of the Guild, one in Seguin and one in New Braunfels. Each chapter has its own President and Executive Committee. The Guild is represented on the MTS Society Board by the Vice-President of Guild, who also acts as liaison between the MTS Board and the Guild chapters.
The Mid-Texas Symphony-New Braunfels Guild Chapter is currently recruiting for the 2020-2021 Debutante program.
