Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Triple Delight, their Season Opening Concert, September 13 & 14 in Dell Hall.
All great things come in threes, and the opening night of your Austin Symphony Orchestra’s 109th season is no exception! We have crafted an evening made up of three amazing pieces, starting with a short ten minute piece, Schubert’s powerful Magnificat in C Major. Next, the ASO will welcome to the stage the return of Van Cliburn Gold Medalist Jon Nakamatsu. Nakamatsu will perform a crowd-pleaser, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major. After a brief intermission, the Austin Symphony, along with Chorcus Austin, will perform Maurice Duruflé’s breathtaking Requiem, Op. 9.
You Austin Symphony, Jon Nakamatsu, Chorus Austin… Schubert, Mozart, Duruflé… This is one opening night of threes you will not want to miss!
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 pm. How about “tweeting” with our musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. Come experience music that is “Larger Than Life!”
