Amarillo Symphony Statement on Cultural Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

“Music does bring people together. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics, or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same.”  John Denver

The Amarillo Symphony believes there is power in music…to inspire, captivate, engage, heal, and unite people.  In that spirit, we are committed to:

  • Using music to bring our community together
  • Being an arts leader, leading with respect, tolerance, and humility. 
  • Making everyone feel welcome, including but not limited to those historically excluded due to race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, age, ability, and the intersection of various other identities.
  • Engaging our community with captivating programs that reflect our region’s diversity.
  • Actively championing music that promotes cultural equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging in all we do.

Our Vision

To cultivate a more vibrant and creative region through world-class music performances and educational programs that connect, engage, and inspire people from all walks of life.


The Amarillo Symphony was founded in 1924 as a 12-piece ensemble led by Miss Grace Hamilton. Now in its 99th season, the Amarillo Symphony is welcoming Maestro George Jackson as its 18th Music Director.
