The Austin Symphony will kick off its 108th season with “The Mighty Russians Part III” featuring piano phenom Lise de la Salle performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 1. A piece he composed at the ripe old age of 18 years.

The evening will begin with Alexander Glazunov’s Carnaval Overture and end with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s amazing Manfred.

Still want more? How about playing on some string instruments provided by our friends at Violin’s Etc.? 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. The Austin Symphony has “Something for Everyone!”
