An extraordinary dream fulfilled
Peter Bay, conductor of the Austin Symphony, fulfills a lifelong dream of connecting Austin's dynamic arts organizations with a community celebration of two fully-staged performances of Bernstein's MASS on June 29 & 30, 2018. A series of outreach programs for both youth and adults, specially crafted for Leonard Bernstein's centennial year, complete this incredible experience. Read more about the B100A project and MASS.
