Season Information

ReIgnite. ReUnite.

“Shock. Concern. Resilience. Rebirth. Gratitude. How does one summarize what we have been feeling since March 2020? The Austin Symphony Orchestra did its part to keep the music playing, if at a distance from you. But now we are fortunate and exhilarated to welcome you back to concerts performed by a full sized orchestra playing some of the greatest music in all of orchestral literature. And we know we will be inspired to make music with you seated before us, completing that magic circuit that makes live concerts so joyous and life-renewing.

Thank you for being the backbone of the Austin Symphony Orchestra and coming back to hear us perform. We missed you!”

ASO Music Director
