New and Happening Now in the WSL
A Pandemic Pivot!
Unable to hold our beloved Jewel Ball this year, we are proud to announce the first ever Yule Ball on December 9, 2020!
Open to WSL members and non-members alike, our traditional WSL holiday party has been transformed into a FREE live, interactive event that you can enjoy as an intimate evening at home or as a watch party gathering with friends. Yule Ball will remind you of the many reasons you love your ASO! Sponsorship opportunities abound and the entertainment will include an amazing silent auction that will put you right in the holiday spirit!
Austin Symphony Orchestra’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund
With the cancellation of spring concerts, the ASO will not make budget for this fiscal year yet continues to fulfill its obligations. No income from box office ticket sales presents a budgeting shortfall when trying to honor these important obligations.
A donation to this Emergency Fund means dollars in the pockets of our talented, local musicians and every dollar helps!
Many Thanks to our 2020 Yule Ball In-Kind Event Sponsors!
