Northeast Orchestra of Tarrant County
If you have wanted to go to an orchestra concert, but would rather not drive all the way to Dallas or Fort Worth, the good news is that the Northeast Orchestra performs right here in Hurst at the Peace Lutheran Church, just two blocks from Northeast Mall. Their concerts are affordable and accessible for anyone in the Hurst, NRH, Bedford, Euless, or Haltom City area.
The Northeast Orchestra is a volunteer organization made up of folks from all walks of life – many are current and former musicians or music educators, but others are doctors, bankers, students, or business owners. They rehearse weekly and they bring a high level of skill and dedication to their playing.
Under the baton of Music Director Tom Connely, the orchestra has recently played such masterpieces as Beethoven’s Symphony #7, Elgar’s Serenade for Strings, and Respighi’s Pines of Rome.
At their pop concert in May of 2019, the orchestra presented a program of orchestral medleys from some of the most popular Broadway shows of all time, including Phantom of the Opera, My Fair Lady, and Les Misérables.
In addition to presenting 5 concerts each season, part of the mission of the Northeast Orchestra is to nurture the next generation of musicians, so every year, they sponsor a young artist competition and the winner receives a $500 scholarship.
The Northeast Orchestra’s 2019 – 2020 concert season begins on October 25, 2019, and will feature violin soloist Oscar Soler playing music of Max Bruch, as well as music of Dvorak, Beethoven and Ravel.
All concerts are on Friday nights at 7:30 pm. Tickets are only $10 / $5 for Seniors and students.
