Your child has an exciting and rare opportunity on the afternoon of Saturday, October 19. 

The Austin Symphony Orchestra and AYO are presenting a Master Class by cellist Matt Haimovitz. Mr Haimovitz is appearing with the ASO that weekend in a performance of the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto in A minor.
