Austin Symphony Announces 1996-97 Season

Season Sponsors: First State Bank and Austin American Statesman

The Austin Symphony’s 1996-97 season is filled with internationally renowned musicians such as Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Doc Severinson and, in addition to the regular season, a special performance by Van Cliburn. The season opens on Friday, September 20, 1996, with Corey Cerovsek playing both the violin and piano.

This season’s excitement is heightened by the continuing search for a new conductor. This season the Austin Symphony looks forward to hosting five more candidates, conducting at various concerts throughout the season – Philip Greenberg, JoAnn Falletta, Stephen Stein, Lawrence Leighton Smith and Andre Raphel Smith.

Season Highlights:

Van Cliburn’s appearance with the Symphony on Saturday, May 24, is co-presented by the Austin Symphony and the U.T. Performing Arts Center. The legendary pianist’s selections will be announced at a later time.
