“It is the tuning of the universe…
It’s as if at the beginning of the symphony God turns up the volume just a tiny bit.”
—Benjamin Zander

Get Involved

Dear Prospective Council Member:

With the 2023-24 Season of the Waco Symphony Orchestra to be announced soon, we invite you to join the Waco Symphony Council and take advantage of its exceptional benefits. Membership with the WSC is designed to heighten the individual concert-going experience. It provides the unique opportunity for conversations about music—including those with the Conductor himself—in both casual and elegant social settings, and forges connections within the community in meaningful and delightful ways. This year WSC Preview Parties provide the sought-after opportunity to mingle with and hear insights from the WSA’s Music Director/Conductor finalists this Fall as well as with Miguel Harth-Bedoya, who will conduct the January and March concerts.

Since its inception in 1965, the Council has supported the Orchestra and is committed to promoting the noble mission of the WSO, now in its 61st Season. Members of the WSC form lasting friendships as they play an active role in fostering education, community involvement, and events that expand music knowledge and appreciation. We encourage you and your friends to join our ranks, get involved with Council projects, and to volunteer.

Council Membership dues start at only $40, with special perks at the Love Note ($120) and Treble Clef Society ($350) levels. All levels of Membership include:

  • Invitations to Preview Parties;
  • Invitation to Annual Council Luncheon; and
  • Volunteer opportunities of your choice.

An elegant and impactful symphony gala will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2024 to raise funds for the Orchestra. Stay tuned for more details!
