Get to know the WSO!
How We Got Started
In 2013 a small group of enthusiastic musicians, led by The
Woodlands resident trumpeter Darryl Bayer, felt the call to fashion and brand a new Woodlands Symphony Orchestra that would
celebrate area musicians with a focus on creating innovative
interdisciplinary concerts. Ten years later, with Darryl Bayer paving the way as Artistic Director, the WSO has performed countless
concerts including shows at The Woodlands Pavilion and for The
Woodlands Township Arts in the Park to reach the masses free of admission charges. Each year the WSO performs Christmas concerts and Handel’s Messiah as their gift to the community.
The WSO is an established fine arts fixture of The Woodlands, Texas. Our mission is to enhance cultural experiences to the community and surrounding cities.
• The WSO celebrates their home-grown musicians featuring soloists from within the orchestra for concerts and guest artists from the Woodlands area.
• The WSO strives to bring artistic perfection to every performance which range from small, intimate audiences to massive audiences 7000 strong.
• The WSO works side-by-side with schools, churches, local government, and arts partners to
produce sell out concerts at multiple venues.

alongside the professional musicians.
