- For more than 60 years, the city's symphony has brought beautiful music and music education to a sometimes arts-challenged citizenry. In recent years, the organization has struggled financially but has continued its tradition of excellence. Whether performing timeless classics or innovative modern arrangements, or accompanying mainstream artists such as James Taylor or Willie Nelson, it has proven its worth as one of the city's finest treasures. The organization also reaches out to educate the community, particularly children, with its Instrument Petting Zoo, which affords children the opportunity to touch and experiment with many of the instruments.
