A Fazioli Festival Featuring Roberto Plano

The Austin Symphony Orchestra has a new addition, and it's a reason to celebrate! With the help of generous donations, the ASO recently purchased a piano: the Fazioli F 308, one of the finest pianos in the world.

KSMQ partnered with the ASO to bring you its debut performance recorded live at the Knowlton Auditorium in Austin. World renowned pianist Roberto Plano introduces this magnificent musical instrument to Minnesota.
