ASB Musicians
The Austin Symphonic Band's musicians represent a cross section of life in Austin, and all are volunteers. There are no auditions, but those interested in joining the band are invited to play in a rehearsal as a rehearsal guest and add their name to our applicant pool for review when an opening occurs in a section.

With musicians ranging in age from under 25 to over 70, ASB members demonstrate that making great music is a lifelong adventure, enriching lives and the community. We've listed them, and their "real" occupation, below.
