“Symphonic Follies”

Enjoy a night of fun lighthearted “classical” music with your Austin Symphony. Music Director, Peter Bay, has arranged an evening filled with fantastic and even funny music by some of the best composers. Guest pianist, Jeffrey Biegel will perform a piece by the sultan of symphonic music, P.D.Q. Bach. You will also get to hear ASO’s own Principal Pianist, Alex Maynegre-Torra perform the crowd favorite, Saint-Saëns’s Le carnaval des animaux!

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 7:10 pm. How about “tweeting” with our musicians andASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. The Austin Symphony wants you to get the most out of your concert experience, which starts…
