About the SymphonyWTAMU Symphony logo

In addition to its performances of symphonic works, opera productions, choral-orchestral masterworks, and dance collaborations, the West Texas A&M University Symphony Orchestra has gained notoriety for its live cinema presentations of silent films with newly-composed synchronized soundtracks.  The 70-member orchestra includes graduate and undergraduate students, both those majoring in music as well as those studying other majors.  The ensemble frequently tours the West Texas region, but in May 2016 completed its first international tour with performances in Prague, Budapest, and Vienna. 

Honors include awards from the American Prize and National Opera Association, and an appearance at the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) convention in San Antonio.

Rehearsals are held:

  • Strings only: M 11:00-12:50
  • Full Orchestra: T/TH 11:00-12:50
