Celebrating our 14th Season
The Margaret Alkek Williams 
2013-2014 Concert Series
Formerly Doctors Orchestra of Houston
Established in November 2000, Texas Medical Center Orchestra of Houston is one of very few community orchestras in the United States and the world with its origin in the health professions. It includes physicians, dentists, nurses, medical students, biomedical scientists, social workers and other allied health professionals who have a dedication to music that goes beyond their daily occupations.
The mission of the orchestra is to provide a fellowship in both music 
and medicine for its members, to provide excellent music in public performances that are accessible to the diverse Houston community 
and to support educational and medically-related charities by calling attention to their work and including them in concerts and other 
musical programs.
To hear the Texas Medical Center Orchestra of Houston is to know 
that this group of health professionals is playing for the love of the music. The orchestra plays with passion and reveals the strong link between careers in the medical professions and musical talent. TMCO gives consistently outstanding and fresh interpretation to the most beautiful symphonic music in the world.

﷯Dear friends,
We hope you will join us for the remaining two concerts of the season. In February, not only we will celebrate Black History Month, but we will also collaborate with one of the largest Baptist churches in Houston, Brentwood Baptist Church. Our selection of music will be invigorating as you see President Lincoln’s vision of freedom and community spirit come to fruition. We honor Lincoln with our performance of Aaron Copland’s Lincoln’s Portrait and the choir will energize you with joyful songs of praise.
Our season comes to an end with a flourish, a magnificent concert filled with Hispanic music and dance. The first half of the concert highlights Spanish composers Albéniz and Manuel de Falla while the second half features Argentinean tango music in all of its artistic expressions. The orchestra will be accompanied by dancers and singers, including Grammy award winner for the bandoneón, Raul Jaurena.
On March 30th TMCO and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Lone Star Chapter will launch its 4th annual bike ride, the TWFG Insurance Services Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO. We extend our gratitude to our new title sponsor TWFG Insurance Services. Their support has enabled us to raise even more money for both organizations. In closing, I would like to again thank our season sponsor Mrs. Margaret Alkek Williams. Your support has inspired us to have more creative and adventurous programs.
Best wishes,
Ariela Alpert, President
