SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT SYMPHONY SQUARE OPENS JUNE 8

Sponsored by Supercuts and Vinson & Elkins

Another summer of salsa, jazz, country & western, pop, bluegrass and blues begins at Symphony Square on Saturday, June 8, with a special appearance by outgoing City Council Member Max Nofziger with Beto y los Fairlanes. The Symphony’s Summer Music Festival continues through August 24 with other favorite Austin musical groups including the Austin Lounge Lizards, Jimmy LaFave, Toni Price, Don Walser, Marcia Ball, Ro-Tel and the Hot Tomatoes and others. Performances will be held at the Square, 11th and Red River, every Saturday evening at 8:30 pm (the box office opens at approximately 7:45 pm). The historic Symphony Square complex, with its stage and amphitheater along the banks of Waller Creek, provides one of Austin’s most beautiful outdoor settings for live music. Food and beverages are available at the adjacent Cafe Serranos (no food or beverages may be brought in.)

After Beto y los Fairlanes kick-off the twenty-first season on June 8, Toni Price will appear on June 15, Don Walser and his Pure Texas Band on June 22, and Mr. Fabulous and Casino Royale on June 29. Because of an Austin Symphony concert with Larry Gatlin at Lakeway on July 6, no performance will be held at Symphony Square on that date. The remainder of July brings Kyle Turner on July 13, Christine Albert and Sarah Elizabeth Campbell on the 20th, and Ro-Tel and the Hot Tomatoes on July 27th. Susanna Sharpe and the Samba Police head the August line-up on the 3rd, the Austin Lounge Lizards appear on August 10, Marcia Ball on the 17th and Jimmy LaFave ends the season on August 24th. The Summer Music Festival is sponsored by Supercuts and Vinson & Elkins. A new sound system for Symphony Square has been provided through contributions from Karen and Jimmy Heldt, Harry B. and Jennifer Friedman, the Mary Potishman Lard Trust, and the Exxon Foundation.
