Similar to some European traditions, the musicians of the Mesquite Symphony Orchestra believe every village and town should have its own ensemble. Therefore, each volunteers his or her time for the community, forsaking money for the sheer thrill of playing the music they love. This passion permeates each concert, too, drawing in many top musicians from North Texas. And the ensemble is celebrating its 30th season, triumphing as an essential force of the region's cultural climate, while cultivating new crops of classical and pops music lovers.
