Humanities Texas recently visited Amarillo as part of our fiftieth anniversary celebrations. During that time, we spoke with Amarillo-based grantees about their work in the humanities, including the Amarillo Symphony. Stay tuned for an upcoming article on these organizations and their work!

On April 21, 2023, the Amarillo Symphony will hold their monthly lunch hour lecture, Lunch and Listening. Hosted by Kimberly Hieb, professor of musicology at West Texas A&M University, the lecture series covers the background and history of works featured in the Amarillo Symphony's concert season and includes interviews with the conductor and participating guest artists.

This month, join Amarillo Symphony Music Director George Jackson and guest artist Joyce Yang for an engaging presentation about Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto no. 2. 

The event will take place at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts on April 21 from 12:00–1:00 p.m. Tickets are ten dollars each and include a boxed lunch with the presentation. For more information, visit the Amarillo Symphony website. 

The Amarillo Symphony Lunch and Listening series is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas.
