It is the mission of the
Central Texas Orchestral Society to bring internationally touring classical artists to Central Texas. In addition to presenting world-class performances, CTOS provides a venue where patrons are able to closely interact with artists during pre- and post-concert events.
CTOS is the parent organization of the
Wildflower Belle and
Junior Cotillion programs that aim to teach students appropriate social and concert etiquette while fostering an appreciation for classical music. As an annual project of the
Wildflower Guild, area music students are given the opportunity to learn and interact with artists during the
Marty Lundgren Master Class.
