Meet The Westwood Symphony Orchestra

The Westwood Symphony Orchestra performs on Show 445.

The Westwood Symphony Orchestra is the premier performing ensemble from Westwood High School in Austin, Texas. Westwood High School, a member of the Round Rock Independent School District, is a comprehensive high school of 2800 students, which has been listed within the top 1% of high schools by Newsweek’s Best High Schools in the Nation.

Comprised of the students in the top orchestra and band from Westwood, the Westwood Symphony Orchestra maintains a tradition of excellence that includes being named the TMEA Honor Orchestra four times and has performed at the Midwest Clinic twice. The spirit of collaboration between the orchestra and band programs is a long tradition at Westwood, as the school annually takes three full Symphony Orchestras to UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluation, and each ensemble is co-conducted by both an orchestra director and a band director.
