The Texas Medical Center Orchestra is known as one of the finest community orchestras in the nation, winning the American Prize for best community orchestra in 2017 and 2018.
Established in 2000, the Texas Medical Center Orchestra (TMCO) is one of the very few orchestras with its origin in the health professions. Most of the members are health professionals who have a dedication to music that goes beyond their daily occupations.
The mission of the orchestra is to provide health care professionals with a high-quality outlet for creative expression through the world of symphonic music; perform regularly at affordable concerts that are open to the public and in an accessible venue; attract a diverse audience by commitments to select popular programming reflecting Houston’s diversity; and bring public attention to, and provide programmatic support for, medically related and/or educational charities.
Founder and Artistic Musical Director, Libi Lebel, has a remarkable talent and growing reputation for leading the award-winning orchestra through challenging and varied programs. Support the orchestra and come see why the Texas Medical Center Orchestra is just the right medicine.
