Texas Medical Center Orchestra was founded in 2000, and is one of the few community orchestras in the United States to be based in the medical community. Each year, TMCO performs concerts in the Crain Garden Lobby of Houston Methodist Hospital and various locations within the Texas Medical Center as well as in premier concert halls in Houston. In addition, TMCO contributes to the community and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the MS Society and has performed free concerts for tens of thousands of Houstonians.
