Spectrum Chamber Music Society began in 1986 with an ensemble of friends and colleagues from the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra who enjoyed playing chamber music together and wanted to share their joy of collaboration with the community at large. It quickly grew to include various ensembles of FWSO musicians who presented an eclectic mix of classical music from the 18th Century to the present day.
Today, Spectrum continues this tradition with a series of six unique programs per season at First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church in east Fort Worth and First United Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth. As part of our commitment to sharing music with as many people as possible, most of our performances are free and open to the public (we do accept freewill donations to help compensate our artists for their time and talent).
Spectrum is looking for funding for exciting projects such as our THIRD ANNUAL music composition award, featuring a cash prize to the winning composer and performance of the chosen work on a Spectrum concert, and our special spring 2024 concert, featuring the Spectrum return of Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra Music Director Laureate and local favorite, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, conducting a performance of the Suite from Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring in its original version for thirteen instruments.
