Amplify Austin

March 2-3, 2017



Help us celebrate our 40th anniversary!

During Amplify Austin Day — our city's annual community-wide day of online giving — we invite you to give toward the production of an ACO concert. Your gift will help us continue to provide high-quality musical experiences to the Austin community for 40 more years, and beyond!

Schedule your gift now or visit Amplify Austin on March 2 after 6 p.m. to give during the 24-hour donation drive.

On average, it costs $7,500 to produce a single concert -- and ticket sales only cover 20% of these expenses. This is intentional! We don't want cost to be a barrier for you and your family to experience great classical music. Your contribution will help cover the cost of renting a venue, marketing and promotion, purchasing/renting musical scores, recording the show, and transporting equipment.

In honor of our 40-year anniversary, our Top 40 donors will be entered in a raffle to win 4 season tickets for our next concert season!
