Texas Medical Center Orchestra

 

Texas Medical Center Orchestra was founded in 2000, and is one of the few community orchestras in the United States to be based in the medical community. Each year, TMCO performs concerts in the Grain Garden Lobby of Houston Methodist Hospital and various locations within the Texas Medical Center.

The mission of the orchestra is to provide health care professionals with a high-quality outlet for creative expression through the world of symphonic music; perform regularly at affordable concerts that are open to the public and in an accessible venue; attract a diverse audience by commitments to select popular programming reflecting Houston’s diversity; and bring public attention to, and provide programmatic support for, medically related and/or educational charities.
