About Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra
The mission of the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is to foster and encourage the appreciation of music through live concert performances and educational programs that are diverse, enriching and of the highest quality.
TODAY’S TSO HAS EARNED A REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S FINEST REGIONAL ORCHESTRAS.
The Symphony employs a professional staff, including a full-time executive director, and has employed many talented and sought-after music directors such as Ransom Wilson, Adrian Gnam, Louis Lane and Shinik Hahm, who have each left a unique and lasting musical imprint on our Symphony and our community. In 2011, after a two-year-long search process, the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, musicians and audience members unanimously voted to invite Adam Flatt to be the music director. Since then, Adam has led the orchestra in concerts and has been widely acclaimed as one of the best in the field. Read more about Adam here.
The Board of Directors is made up of more than 30 successful, hard-working members from diverse backgrounds and occupations. The Board is responsible for fundraising and keeping in accordance with association bylaws.
TSO musicians are faculty members and extraordinary students from The University of Alabama’s School of Music, members of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra (located in Birmingham) and professional musicians from across Alabama, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis and other locations within a two hundred and fifty mile radius.
