The Spectrum series is unlike any other in North Texas. Three times a year we have the incredible opportunity to sit in our beautiful chapel and listen to some of the Fort Worth Symphony’s finest artists…for free, no less. You absolutely don’t want to miss the Spectrum concerts this season! Please plan to join us Monday, October 13 at 7:00 pm in the Leonard Memorial Chapel and at the reception afterwards in Wesley Hall.

The Spectrum Chamber Music Ensemble was founded in 1986 by six members of the Fort Worth Chamber Orchestra as a means to explore compositions written for smaller ensembles. Originally consisting of two violinists, two violists and two cellists, Spectrum soon expanded its scope to become an “umbrella organization,” presenting a wide variety of works involving a virtually infinite combination of instruments. As a result, Spectrum has truly become an entity driven by the desires of the performing artists to seek out the unusual and obscure as well as the familiar.
Spectrum is the oldest continuously operating series of professional chamber music performances in Fort Worth. Though the majority of its members also perform in the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, we frequently feature artist-faculty members of local universities, members of other area orchestras and wind ensembles, and other solo artists. Occasionally, we are also proud to provide an opportunity for talented local students to perform in a formal setting. Considering the broad range of local talent and the enormous legacy of music performed, Spectrum truly lives up to its name.
