Mesquite Symphony Orchestra


The Mesquite Symphony Orchestra is a volunteer orchestra created to serve Mesquite and surrounding areas. The tradition of our European neighbors is for such an ensemble to exist in virtually every town, city or village. These ensembles are sources of great pride for the community and are supported by that community. The Mesquite Symphony Orchestra is unique from most of the other orchestras in the area in that it utilizes volunteer musicians. That makes it very special. We can be very proud of the fact that many fine musicians from the North Texas area have chosen to join and perform with your symphony orchestra.
