The Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Creative Expressions, celebrating women composers, March 22 – 23 in Dell Hall.
A real musical treat served up by your Austin Symphony Orchestra, celebrating the treasures composed by women through the ages. The evening’s banquet begins with “Overture in C Major” by Fanny Mendelssohn and continues with expressive works by “Lili” Boulanger, Clara Schumann, Vítězslava Kaprálová, and award-winning American composer Jennifer Higdon. Joined by the famed group Time for Three and prominent pianist Michelle Schumann, ready your taste buds for a palette of artistic decadence!
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 7:10pm. How about “tweeting” with our musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. Comer “Hear a Great Story” with YOUR Austin Symphony!
