The mission of the Symphony League is to provide entertainment for Hopkins County residents and visitors at periodic orchestra concerts such as the Independence Day Celebration and small-orchestra and chamber orchestra performances in select venues in Sulphur Springs. The league was developed to bring classical and pop orchestral music to rural northeast Texas where such live performances were not readily available. Further, the League seeks to educate younger residents in developing their cultural understanding and improving their social skills by encouraging music instruction, funding music scholarships, providing stringed instruments to the school district, and presenting live orchestra performances at children’s concerts.
Who We Are
The Sulphur Springs Symphony League (SSSL) and the Northeast Texas Symphony Association (NETSA) are one and the same organizations at this time. NETSA is open to association of other northeast Texas symphony orchestra interests. Our orchestra, the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra (NETSO), is composed of professional musicians, many of whom perform with major orchestras in Dallas or Fort Worth. Most of the musicians live in Dallas, Fort Worth, and other cities throughout north Texas, as well as a couple from Louisiana. Each musician is contracted to rehearse and perform periodic events presented by the Symphony League.
