TxState Orchestra in rehearsal

Welcome to the Texas State University Orchestra program! Orchestras at Texas State have a long tradition of excellence, and the TxSt Orchestra Program continues this tradition by presenting exciting, intellectually stimulating and emotionally moving concerts every year.

We are excited to announce our new Director of Orchestral Activities, Dr. Jacob Harrison! Dr. Harrison comes to us from Iowa State University where he won multiple awards for his teaching and led a significant expansion of the orchestra program.

For 2018-2019, we will continue to offer the great works of the orchestral tradition, as well as feature some of the very best student musicians on campus. Please check back for updates to the 2018-2019 season that are coming soon.

We are excited about the musical and educational opportunities this year and hope you will join us either as a member of our orchestras or as a member of our audience. Please explore our newly updated site to find out more about upcoming concerts, how to join the orchestra, scholarship opportunities, and additional ways you can be a part of the amazing work these students do.

Thank you for your continued support!
