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 MTS Guild is the support organization 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.
Members of the Guild take an active role in fund-raising, in sponsoring educational programs and in providing hospitality for the orchestra. The Debutante programs are one of most popular guild programs and are highlighted by the presentation of the Debutantes at each chapter’s annual symphony Ball. The New Braunfels chapter also sponsors a very successful Cotillion program. The Guild welcomes new members at any time. Please contact the MTS office for more information.
