Fri, 8pm - 11:59pm

Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven’s Fifth, April 13 – 14 in Dell Hall.
da-da-da-DUM! Hear one of the most recognizable pieces in the classical repertory, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5! This is one you don’t want to miss and certainly a sellout. The evening will begin with an upbeat piece written by American composer Michael Torke. The ASO will then play Leonard Bernstein’s Serenade. ASO Music Director, Peter Bay, had this to say about the piece, “perhaps his greatest concert work!” It was inspired by Plato’s Symposium. Guest violinist Vadim Gluzman will return to Austin to perform the Serenade after his monumental performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in 2013 where he received standing ovations between movements and then a record breaking 4 ovations!

Still want more? How about playing on some string instruments provided by our friends at Violins Etc.? We also have a wonderful pre-concert talk given by Bob Buckalew at 7:10pm. How about “tweeting” with out musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. The Austin Symphony has “Something for Everyone.”
