Event Details

Join us in February for an unforgettable musical journey as the Austin Symphony Orchestra presents an enchanting evening filled with the most remarkable compositions. Prepare to be captivated by the sheer brilliance of four exquisite works that will transport you to a realm of pure musical bliss.

Renowned pianist Anton Nel takes center stage, weaving his magical artistry into Benjamin Britten’s Piano Concerto, Op. 13. Feel the emotive power of every note as Nel’s fingers dance across the keys, bringing Britten’s masterpiece to life in a way that will leave you spellbound.

The evening unfolds with Samuel Barber’s timeless Adagio for Strings, a piece that has the remarkable ability to tug at heartstrings and evoke profound emotions. Let the music wash over you, transporting you to a realm of introspection and beauty.

As the intermission fades, immerse yourself in Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, a true testament to the symphonic wonders that can be created. The orchestra’s harmonious melodies will envelop you, carrying you through a sonic journey that’s both soothing and exhilarating.

And the grand finale awaits as Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms take the stage, performed in collaboration with the magnificent Chorus Austin. Feel the unity of voices and instruments as they converge to create a musical tapestry that celebrates the human spirit and artistic expression.

Don’t miss this extraordinary evening of orchestral brilliance and vocal artistry. Mark your calendar for a night that promises to be an immersive experience of classical treasures and contemporary wonders.
