Lamar Civic Orchestra

Your College-Community Symphony

Lamar Civic Orchestra

Directed by Dr. Kurt Gilman, the Lamar Civic Orchestra is a full-symphony orchestra organized in 2008 to provide an opportunity for trained musicians from all walks of life to perform together and enrich the community. The orchestra’s members include undergraduate and graduate students at Lamar, students at the Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities, Lamar faculty and staff, area music educators, and Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana musicians from a number of different professions.


Membership is open, by audition, to college-level or older orchestral musicians throughout the greater Beaumont area. The orchestra’s repertoire represents everything from the classics to pops literature. Interested parties may contact Dr. Gilman to schedule an interview.
