“Feast of Voices”
  • where: Dell Hall directions
  • conductor: Peter Bay

Bring that special someone to our Masterworks II performance which is filled with amazing music from Bruckner, Vaughan Williams, and Britten. The highlight of the evening will be Anton Bruckner’s Te Deum with over 220 ASO musicians and members from Chorus Austin! Bruckner premiered his Te Deum on May 2, 1885 in the Kleiner Musikvereinssaal in Vienna. The composer dedicated the piece to A.M.D.G. (Ad maiorem Dei gloriam) “in gratitude for having safely brought me through so much anguish in Vienna.” The evening will also have ASO’s very own principal violist, Bruce Williams, performing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Flos Campi and the North America premiere of Bruckner’s arrangement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s popular Sonata Pathétique.

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 p.m with special guest Ryan Heller from Chorus Austin and Bruce Williams, ASO principal violist. How about “tweeting” with our musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. The Austin Symphony has “Something for Everyone.”
