Founded in 1911, the Austin Symphony Orchestra is Austin’s oldest performing arts group. The ASO offers a complete season of musical and educational programming. Classical concerts include a series of eight concert pairs running monthly September through May in Bass Concert Hall. Our season also features the Sarah & Ernest Butler Pops Series: Fall & Winter Pops at Riverbend Centre and Holiday & Promenade Pops at Palmer Events Center. Programming for the entire family includes the Halloween Children’s Concert, Christmas Sing-Along and the Family Concert, as well as popular educational concerts like Children’s Day Art Park, Young People’s Concerts, High School Concerts and other school programs.
Symphony Square at 11th and Red River is home to the ASO’s administrative offices. This complex of four historic Austin buildings is also home to a popular restaurant, Serranos, and the headquarters of the Women’s Symphony League of Austin.
