Austin has one of the oldest orchestras in the state of Texas, but the Austin Symphony is lesser known in comparison to other music options here in the Live Music Capital of the World. Austin Symphony Orchestra provides a stunning season every year with talented guest musicians, moving classical pieces, and a fun Pop Series that nurtures a healthy sense of nostalgia.
In my opinion, the best way to get in on the fun is to join Austin Symphony BATS. Symphony BATS is the orchestra’s personal fan club. As such, members get a behind-the-scenes look, while celebrating their love for music with special social events and parties.
What Is Austin Symphony BATS?
Austin Symphony BATS (which stands for Be At The Symphony) is a young professionals group closely associated with Austin Symphony Orchestra. BATS was created 19 years ago, when one of the founding members rounded up a bunch of his friends to go with him to go to an Austin Symphony show.
