The Conroe Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1997. Since its inception, the Symphony has continued under the baton of several fine musicians including Dr. Robert Zwick, Dr. Don Hutson, Dr. Jacob Sustaita and Ms. Anna-Maria Gkouni—the orchestra’s first female conductor, who had to resign due to health reasons.

The 2022 season will be highlighted by a cadre of Guest Conductors which highlight the incredible talent of the Greater Houston-area’s symphony conductors. Dr. Dan Dr. Kayoko, Director of Orchestral Activities and Assistant Professor at Sam Houston State University will conduct the April 2022 concert. Clarence Frank, Jr., Director of Performing Arts for Baytown Christian Academy and Conductor of the Southeast Texas Choral Society will conduct the Patriotic July 2022 concert. That concert is free of charge.

The Conroe Symphony Orchestra was created to add to the cultural enrichment of the community, assuring a better quality of life for the Conroe area.
