Under the baton of its founder, Maestro Robert Carter Austin, Symphony Arlington launched a successful debut season in 2000. Symphony Arlington’s continued growth has taken it from Tarrant County College’s 200 seat Roberson Theater in 2000, to University of Texas – Arlington’s 400 seat Rosebud Theater the following season. In 2005 Symphony Arlington moved to the MetroCenter performance space with a 1,750 seat capacity. This move facilitated growth by doubling classical concert attendance, and tripling pops concert attendance in 2006. In October 2010, Symphony Arlington debuted its eleventh season at the newly renovated and permanent home to Symphony Arlington, The Arlington Music Hall. Today Symphony Arlington serves the community as one of the core cultural attractions in Arlington.
Symphony Arlington is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission to enhance the quality of life in our growing and diverse community by inspiring, entertaining and involving citizens and organizations through music concerts of superior cultural and educational value.
