- Name: Austin Symphony Orchestra
Founded in 1911, the Austin Symphony Orchestra is Austin’s oldest performing arts group. The ASO offers a complete season of musical and educational programming. Masterworks concerts include a series of eight concert pairs running monthly September through May in the state-of-the-art Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts. Our season also features the Sarah & Ernest Butler Pops Series: October & February Pops at the Long Center and December & June Pops at Palmer Events Center. Programming for the entire family includes the Halloween Children’s Concert, and the Christmas in the Community, as well as the popular James C. Armstrong Youth Educations Programs, which include Children’s Day Art Park, Young People’s Concerts, High School Concert Tour and a variety of other school programs.
Acknowledging that there is no way to be certain that large concert halls will be safe by fall for patrons, musicians and staff, the Austin Symphony announced that its concerts now scheduled from September though December will be presented virtually.
Some concerts — such as Handel’s ‘Messiah’ and other big pieces — have been moved to January and beyond. Meanwhile, starting at the end of December, audience members will have the options of returning to the Long Center for the Performing Arts or continuing with online performances.
How and where will the musicians perform for these virtual concerts?
“We are working with our orchestra committee to make sure we are doing this the safest way possible,” symphony spokeswoman Rachel Santorelli says. “Whether it be recording in sections of the orchestra, or leaving more distance among the musicians. We want the sound quality to be top notch and the visual component to be engaging as well as interactive.”
Patrons may renew or purchase subscriptions now. Subscriptions start as low as $198 for all eight Masterworks Series concerts and $114 for the Butler Pops Series. Single tickets will go on sale in August. Season information is available online at www.austinsymphony.org where you will find seating maps, price options and concert information.
