The Central Texas Orchestral Society will present a full season with four concerts at the Azalee Marshall Cultural Activities Center in 2021, despite a delayed start due to the pandemic.

“The concerts for this season are truly world-class,” Becky Montgomery, CTOS board president, said. “We would be proud of the season regardless, but being able to bring the performing arts back to Central Texas after the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic is very exciting.”

The first concert of the season on Jan. 30 will be presented virtually, however the rest of the performances are scheduled to happen in-person at the CAC, with a socially distant audience.
