About Temple Symphony Orchestra
The Temple Symphony Orchestra’s mission is to entertain, to educate and to enrich the cultural life of Central Texas. This mission is supported by providing a broad repertoire of live music performances of the highest artistic standards to a wide and diverse audience and by educating students and adults about our rich musical traditions
Under the excellent leadership of Thomas Fairlie, founding Musical Director/Conductor, the Temple Symphony Orchestra is beginning its 21st season. The TSO is made up of between 65 and 90 professional musicians from throughout the Central Texas area. Most are educators and all have a passion for music and their instrument. The TSO is dedicated to making the orchestral experience accessible and appealing to everyone and is committed to providing the community with quality musical programming featuring local as well as national and international artists performing classical music, pops and jazz.
A volunteer board of directors provides guidance and manages the day-to-day operation of the organization.
Funding for the TSO is provided by corporate sponsors, grants, an annual fund drive, individual benefactors and patrons, fund-raising activities, program advertising, season subscriptions and individual concert ticket sales.
