The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.



The Austin Symphony and the Long Center are proud to present the 4th Annual Sarah & Ernest Butler Texas Young Composers Competition and Concert, on April 10.

The Texas Young Composers will present the world premiere of new orchestral works composed by Texas students age 18 and under and performed by your Austin Symphony Orchestra! “With so many qualified entries, we wanted to showcase more compositions,” stated ASO Executive Director Anthony Corroa. “It is very difficult for young composers to have their composition played by a professional orchestra. Many orchestras are not willing to take a chance on the new works and the young composers. It is our hope that the ASO’s Young Composers Competition and Texas Young Composers Concert will encourage young Texas composers and nurture future masterpieces.”
