The home of the East Texas Symphony Orchestra, the Cowan Center at the University of Texas at Tyler (UTT)
Welcome to Tyler, heart of East Texas in the Lone Star State, at the center of Smith County!
Located in the rolling hills of East Texas in Smith County mid-way between Dallas and Shreveport, Tyler has a wide range of appeal.
Tyler's lifestyle is cosmopolitan, yet has the feel, benefits and security of a small town.
It offers benefits such as the East Texas Symphony Orchestra and a variety of plays and musicals, at various venues including the renown Cowan Center located on the campus of the University of Texas at Tyler.
The highly-respected Tyler Museum of Art showcases both permanent, rotating and visiting collections. The Museum is currently engaged in the design of a much larger facility.
The Caldwell Auditorium is part of the Caldwell Elementary Arts Academy, and is operated by the Tyler Independent School District (TISD). It is located at 300 South College Avenue near downtown Tyler. It is the site of a variety of performances and musical events through the year, including concerts sponsored by the Tyler Community Concert Association.
