“March Madness”
Show guest artist bio
  • where: Dell Hall directions
  • conductor: Peter Bay

March Madness doesn’t just happen on the basketball court! Grab a seat and hang on for exciting surprises and pieces that will win over your heart. Composers Elgar, Chopin and Tchaikovsky, to name a few, wrote bracket-worthy marches from different places around the world. Now hear them live in Austin along with Brahms’ Double Concerto in A Minor featuring violinist Vadim Gluzman and cellist Wendy Warner.

Still want more? How about playing on some instruments provided by our friends at Strait Music.? 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!” Feeling a little peckish? Our friends at Spectrum Catering will be offering meal options outside on the Terrace and also on the Mezzanine level.
