About the Belles and Brass Program

Welcome to online registration for Belles and Brass 2018-19! We are so glad you are considering this program for your son or daughter. The Belles and Brass program is just one way the Symphony Council supports and furthers the interests of the Waco Symphony Orchestra.

The Belles and Brass program of the Waco Symphony Council is designed for area high school students—Sophomore and Junior girls and Junior boys—to raise awareness of the Symphony and to educate these future leaders in music appreciation, leadership qualities and etiquette. It also gives participants an opportunity to meet other area students with whom they might not ordinarily associate. The program culminates the spring of their junior year with a formal Presentation at a Waco Symphony Orchestra Concert.

The Belle program for high school girls begins the Sophomore year and lasts for two years. During their time of service, the Belles attend music appreciation courses, usher at Symphony concerts, and volunteer at Council fundraisers and other events that vary from year to year. In addition they attend a ropes course activity to promote leadership and teamwork. The Waco Symphony Council recently added another component to help these future business and community leaders by implementing a dinner etiquette seminar, complete with a multi-course formal dinner.

The program was started in the 1965-66 Concert Season and continues to be changed and adjusted to serve the needs of the Symphony and area organizations.

The Council appreciates your interest in the Belles and Brass program!
