About the RSO

Founded in 1961, the Richardson Symphony Orchestra has grown with the DFW metroplex and is recognized as one of the premiere orchestras of the region. It is the resident symphony of the Charles W. Eisemann Center for Performing Arts and offers a variety of classical and pops concerts each season, programmed to appeal to the varied audiences of the area.

Throughout its history, the orchestra has been known for its innovative programming and as a showplace for brilliant up-and-coming talent. Many notable artists have made their DFW symphony debut with the RSO, including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Nadia Solaerno-Sonnenberg and pianist Behzod Abduraimov.

In addition to the critically acclaimed season performances, the Richardson Symphony Orchestra is also widely regarded as a leader in education and community outreach programs. The Lennox International Young Artists Competition annually draws talented young performers from around the world. The orchestra is also actively involved in elementary education programs at area schools and universities.
