Commissioners approve new Texas home for Conroe Symphony

Posted on: May 25, 2010

In Tuesday’s (5/25) Houston Community Newspapers, Brad Meyer writes, “Conroe Symphony Orchestra officials are looking forward to doubling the space they have for rehearsal, administration and storage now that County Commissioners have approved a lease agreement. During their meeting Monday, commissioners unanimously approved a five-year lease for the CSO to take over the former sanctuary on the Church of Christ campus … While final details of the agreement have yet to be worked out, the 4,400-square-foot space will be made available to CSO at a rate of $1,000 per month. ‘The symphony will continue to have concerts at the Ark Church,’ said Aline Arnold, board chair for CSO. ‘This new space will give us better ticketing facilities, storage and a facility for smaller performance events.’ … The orchestra is a nonprofit organization providing a variety of musical performances and educational activities for area residents. It is comprised of approximately 60 volunteer musicians, many of them current and former music educators … The new space will allow the CSO to host smaller concerts and performances at its new facility. Arnold would not speculate when the move would be complete, saying final details were to be worked out with county officials in the near future.”
