FWSO receives grant for overseas tour

🕐 1 min read

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra Association is a step closer to its fundraising goal for a 2016 international tour thanks to a $25,000 grant from the Fort Worth Promotion and Development Fund.

The funds support the orchestra’s six-city tour of Spain next May. This will be the first international tour for the Orchestra in 25 years and the first with Music Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya. The tour will be presented by Conciertos Augusto, an arts management firm based in Madrid dedicated to bringing the best of international classical music to Spain.

This season, the FWSO is the only orchestra from the United States on the touring roster.

Harth-Bedoya and the FWSO will be joined by violinist Midori performing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Tour repertoire also includes Copland’s Rodeo, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture and Gershwin’s American in Paris.
