The curtains open to a dimly lit stage as orchestra members test their instruments in preparation for an upcoming performance. A number of symphony orchestras bring classical music to communities nestled amid the tall pine trees, cattle ranches and rodeo arenas weaving a thread of culture and refinement throughout Northeast Texas. Orchestras and supporting leagues based in Texarkana, Longview, Tyler, and Marshall organize performances throughout the year. Many orchestra members also perform in smaller chamber music ensembles and symphony bands taking beautiful music all over the region.
