  • Hartman Concert Park at the Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Dr.
  • Free admission

In what will be its 18th summer season, free ensemble concerts take place in the Hartman Concert Park in front of the Long Center City Terrace and run Sunday evenings fromMay/ June through August (except July 5th) 7:30 p.m. A gift from the Hartman Family Foundation, these concerts are presented to the Austin community in thanks for its continued, generous support. Each Sunday a different ensemble of the Austin Symphony will be featured at the new Hartman Park, located on the grounds of the Long Center for the Performing Arts, performing music from jazz and light classical to pops selections and film scores. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and blanket and make it a group outing Sorry, no alcohol is allowed at these events.

The music and atmosphere will reflect a simpler time when performances of familiar classics in downtown gathering places were commonplace. It is the hope of the Hartman family that these free and very informal outdoor events will provide an opportunity for Austinites to become acquainted or reacquainted with the classical music experience. These enchanting outdoor park concerts, which last one hour, are an ideal opportunity for Austinites to enjoy some of the Capitol City’s greatest pleasures — the fine music presented by the Austin Symphony and the magnificent cityscape views of downtown Austin.
