The ASO concludes its 106th season with a performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s famous Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor. This piece launched Sergei Rachmaninoff in superstardom and is considered a staple of repertory in concert halls all over the world.

Still want more? How about playing on some string instruments provided by our friends at Violin’s Etc.? We also have a wonderful pre-concert talk given by Bob Buckalew at 7:10 pm. How about “tweeting” with our musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. The Austin Symphony wants you to get the most out of your concert experience!
