A letter from Maestro David Mairs
I am looking forward to the 2017-18 season and the opportunity to celebrate the 40th season of our beloved Mid-Texas Symphony. Anita Windecker’s vision of bringing great orchestral music to Seguin, New Braunfels, and all of the surrounding areas has blossomed into something extraordinary and exquisite! How wonderful it is to be able to be a part of this and really celebrate, and celebrate we will! I can’t wait.
This 40th Anniversary Season is my final season as Music Director of the Mid-Texas Symphony. I will have been privileged to serve as Music Director for 22 years, and, after much discussion and prayer with my soul mate Beth, I am convinced that it is time for me to step aside and allow the organization to launch out in another exciting direction with fresh leadership.
I want to say thank you for the opportunity to serve my colleagues in our mutual quest for musical excellence and the development of a musical family of which we can all be proud. What is accomplish each and every concert, making do with very few rehearsals, and yet coming together to create so many magical moments for our audience AND for each other, is amazing!
The members of the Board of Directors, I can only say “Thank you” for putting your trust in me all these years and working together to bring our communities something very special.
To our patrons and our donors, I must say “Thank you” for being in your seats each concert, for your rapt attention and your love of this incredible music. I say “Thank you for your gifts, your support and your love.
With love and great admiration for each and every one of you,
David Mairs Music Director
