Membership in the orchestra is open to community members of all ages, including high school, who play string, wind, brass and percussion.

“In my short time at UT I have been overwhelmed and overjoyed with the commitment, dedication and passion these area musicians have brought to each and every rehearsal,” said Maddaleno. “This concert is only the beginning for this growing orchestra that continues to raise the bar. We warmly encourage all to attend this spectacular concert to start off our season.”
