We will present a five-concert series in 2015-16 comprised of over two centuries’ worth of works for orchestra and chorus. From concerti to Matins responsories, suites to motets, and a Mozart Mass setting, there will be something for every early music lover! In addition to our home venue of First Presbyterian Church in Austin, we’ll also be appearing at Mission Concepción and the Old Ursuline Academy Chapel of the Southwest School of Art, both in San Antonio.
Season tickets are available for both General Admission and Senior Admission, and will give you a 20% discount from the price you would have paid had you purchased individual tickets for each concert.
