Paint to Music 2022

Join the ACO for its annual Paint to Music concert at the Rodney And Mary Klett Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 PM. Hosted with support from the Georgetown Arts Commission, this special ACO performance will feature award-winning guest pianist Anton Nel, soprano Julia Taylor, and artwork created by local students inspired by Alan Hovhaness’s Mysterious Mountain Symphony.

“The Austin Civic Orchestra is thrilled to perform once again in Georgetown at the beautiful Klett Performing Arts Center,” says Lois Ferrari, ACO Music Director. “We are especially thrilled to host world-renowned pianist Anton Nel and to also highlight our annual Paint to Music contest. The concert program will juxtapose the old and relatively new with Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto and Mysterious Mountain, a 20th century symphony by Alan Hovhaness.”

The support of the Georgetown Arts Commission helped the ACO bring this unique concert to life. “Making high-quality, live classical music accessible to the entire Austin community is at the heart of everything we do, and this gift from the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board helps make that possible”, says Benjamin Bachmeier, ACO Board President. “We are especially honored to have their support for our annual Paint to Music concert, a special performance that highlights both our local musicians and many of Austin’s talented young artists.”

Paint to Music is part of the Austin Civic Orchestra’s 2021-22 season, Reunited, featuring beloved classics alongside new and eclectic works. Learn more about the ACO and upcoming events at
