An outstanding performance of Beethoven’s 5 symphony by this orchestra. This was our second visit having on our last trip to Austin seen their excellent production of Fantasia. I would recommend their concerts to anyone who enjoys good music and great musicians

We've been here before, enjoying the orchestra. Often it's truly excellent. Last night was a show-stopper, with an incomparable organist playing his incomparable touring organ. He was well supported by Peter Bey and the orchestra musicians, although the solo encores were spectacular.

We attended Austin Symphony Orchestra's Concert last night. There was one work on the concert - Mahler's Sixth Symphony - and they did it superbly. Mahler is a great favorite of mine - having played Mahler's Fifth in the past and listened to his work...More

This is one of the true gems in Austin. We have been several times this year. The musicianship is not as great as ft worth, Dallas or Houston, but it's not far behind. The conductor and musicians have fun with their presentation without cheapening their...More

On first hearing, we were a little disappointed. The Hummel Trumpet Concerto with Alison Balsom a few months ago was very good, but the rest of the program was kind of ho-hum. Then we attended their Carmina Burana on May 30, and it blew the...More
