Austin Symphony Orchestra presents “Bella and the Beast,” featuring Rossini, Bach, Stravinsky, Hovhaness & Haydn, January 12 – 13 in Dell Hall.

The Austin Symphony starts the new year with a bang! The talented and beautiful Bella Hristova will perform the beastly Stravinsky Violin Concerto in D Major (hence the name “Bella and the Beast”). The night will also have the contemporaries give nods to the greats of the Baroque and Classical Era. This is one you don’t want to miss. Bring that special someone because the ASO has “Something for Everyone.”

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 7:10pm. How about “tweeting” with out musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. The Austin Symphony has “Something for Everyone.”
