About the Hixson Symphony Orchestra
The Hixson Symphony Orchestra (HSO) is comprised of teachers, performers, and pets from Hixson, TN. The HSO has won numerous awards such as Best Orchestra in the Universe in 2013, The Orchestra to End All Orchestras Super Badge in 2015, and Nicest Dressed Orchestra in Southeast Tennessee in 2016. This prestigious group attempts to break the norm of average orchestras while still embracing the classics. In an effort to remain on the cutting edge of contemporary classical music, the HSO puts on one concert each year comprised entirely of music that hasn't been written yet. In its latest concert season, the HSO was the first orchestra to put on a concert on Europa, one of Jupiter's more-habitable moons, and was lauded by no less than twelve world leaders as "much better than the YouTube version."
