First Thursday FREE Concert at Heritage Place in Conroe

Conroe Symphony OrchestraGrab the kids, pack up the cooler with sandwiches, sodas (no glass containers, please!) and other goodies, then come on down for an evening of FREE entertainment provided by the Conroe Symphony Orchestra (CSO), from 7 until 9 p.m., Thursday, September 5. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets too, and enjoy this event at Heritage Place, 500 Metcalf Street.

Once you get to hear them, you will surely want to make plans to attend their first performance of the 2013-2014 season, A Cowboy Extravaganza, at the Ark Church, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. And, of course, you won’t want to miss their show in December: A Christmas Celebration, Monday, December 2, 2013 at 7:30pm at The Ark Church.

The CSO Season includes traditional classical treasures, popular favorites and featured soloists. The major objective is providing the best possible musical experience, while showcasing the talent and hard work of our area musicians. The Symphony’s objectives could not be accomplished without the talent and hard work of all of the volunteers. The Conroe Symphony Orchestra took a giant step forward during late 2005 when The Ark Church became the “Home of the Symphony” for regular concerts.

The vision of the Conroe Symphony is to “be recognized as one of the outstanding community orchestras in the State of Texas.”

As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit community orchestra, the CSO is supported through individual and corporate donations and grants, in addition to ticket sales. Since ticket sales generate only 25% to 30% of their income, the Symphony depends very heavily on donations from supporters.

Dr. Don Hutson is the CSO Music Director and Conductor, and Dr. Aline Arnold is Board Chair and Executive Director.
