Austin Symphony Orchestra Halloween Children's Concert

CHILLS & THRILLS!

It’s creepy, crawly and so much fun it’s spooky! Your little ghost or goblin will help haunt the Long Center for the Performing Arts for the Austin Symphony’s annual Halloween Children’s Concert. This exciting concert features frightfully fun symphonic music that is stimulating for young eyes and ears (ages 2–10). The entire family is invited to dress up in their favorite costume and enjoy “boo-tiful” music with their Austin Symphony Orchestra!

This season’s featured piece will be selections from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake with narration by Austin storyteller, Bernadette Nason. Other fun pieces will be performed that will keep you and your entire family entertained.

I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself as I will be serving as the new ABRSM representative for Austin region beginning August, 2019.  My name is Natalie Voogt, and like many of you, I am a musician and an educator.  I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Gelene Johnson and the tremendous work she has done as a music advocate and ABRSM representative. I look forward to doing the same for Austin in the years to come.

I wish to have the privilege to meet you in the near future, but until then -- allow me to tell you a little bit about myself.  I am currently the executive director at Campbell Learning Center, a nonprofit arts organization in Houston, benefiting the Spring Branch and greater Houston communities.  I am very passionate about arts education and have taught in the school districts for over 10 years, all the while teaching music privately over the past 20 years.  I have personally participated as an ABRSM candidate in my youth and have therefore seen the program from various perspectives: as a candidate, an applicant, an instructor, and a local vendor of ABRSM materials.  I have always found ABRSM's comprehensive curriculum to be highly regarded and a prevailing international standard within music education.  Therefore, I am thrilled to continue advocating for the program as a local representative.  

Please let me know how I can be of assistance and a resource to you as we reach the Austin population together with music.  I will be connecting with you in a separate email regarding the approaching Winter session deadlines.  In the meantime, please find some important information below, and a FAQ's document attached to this email:
