More about the program.....

The Belle and Brass program of the Waco Symphony Council is a program designed for area high school students to raise awareness of the symphony and to educate these future leaders in music appreciation, leadership qualities and etiquette. It also gives these students an opportunity to meet other area school students with whom they might not ordinarily associate. The program was started in concert year 1965-66 and has been changed and adjusted to serve the current needs of the Symphony and area organizations.

The program for high school girls “Belles” begins the Sophomore year and lasts for two years. During their two years of service, the Belles will attend music appreciation courses, usher at Symphony concerts, and volunteer at various events such as ZooTunes! – a family event held at the Cameron Park Zoo, the Symphony Show House and other events that may vary from year to year. In addition they attend a “ropes course” activity to promote leadership and teamwork. We recently added another component to help these future business and community leaders, by implementing a dinner etiquette seminar, complete with several course formal dinner.
