Since 1925, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has done about all you’d expect of a major orchestra—and then some. They’ve played in the legendary Carnegie Hall, performed with Luciano Pavarotti, and toured countries from Mexico to China. Although the international events are some of the FWSO’s most impressive resume fodder, the majority of their best work happens right in Fort Worth. Bass Performance Hall in Sundance Square provides the backdrop for some of the most important works by some of the most prominent composers in music history. The FWSO combines Brahms and Beethoven with pops performances of Broadway favorites, jazz, and more. The orchestra also has a summer series called Concerts in the Garden, offering music in the casual setting of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Each performance ends with a fireworks display, so pack a picnic basket and bring the kids.
