The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra is proud to collaborate with the following partners:
Fort Worth Opera
Each year the Fort Worth Opera Festival employs the help of over 500 people to bring the often mysterious operatic stage to life. This includes collaborators such as the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Texas Boys Choir, and the Texas Ballet Theater. Established in 1946 as the Fort Worth Civic Opera Association, the company debuted with Giuseppe Verdi's La traviata and has been impassioning opera lovers ever since.
Each year, alongside the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary's Master Chorale performs Handel's Messiah. This amazing Christmas tradition is showcased at beautiful Bass Hall, located in downtown Fort Worth. With several satellite campuses located around Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Germany, the Seminary serves over 3,500 students. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary has been a Fort Worth landmark since 1910.

Van Cliburn International Piano Competition
Fort Worth hosts the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, first held in 1962 in honor of Mr. Cliburn. This competition, called "the most prestigious in the world," is held at Bass Performance Hall every four years. The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra regularly performs at the event. The reputation of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition has grown and now rivals Moscow's prestigious International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition — the very event that propelled Cliburn into the spotlight 50 years ago.
