An Austin Symphony Orchestra 100-Year Retrospective
Happy 100th Birthday, Austin Symphony!
On Tuesday, April 25th, 1911, the Austin Symphony Orchestra had its first performance, and KMFA will celebrate this 100th Anniversary with a special program: A.S.O. 100! Learn about your Austin Symphony, the first-ever Drive-in Symphony Concert in the United States, Monday night performances in the Coliseum after a weekend stockade show, and other “batty” and sublime moments.
KMFA’s Dianne Donovan chats with her guests: Maestro Peter Bay, Artistic Director and Conductor of the A.S.O.; Anthony Corroa, Executive Director of the A.S.O.; Joan Holtzman, Board Secretary, Charter Member of Women’s Symphony League, and de facto A.S.O. historian; and Eugene Gratovich, Associate Concertmaster (member of the A.S.O for 24 years), The Roy E. & Linda S. Bush Associate Concertmaster
