Description

Seeing a show at Bass Concert Hall is one of those iconic Austin experiences, unless you spend so much time circling for parking you miss curtain call.

MAKE IT A SMART TRIP! Capital Metro and Texas Performing Arts invite you for an unforgettable night at Bass Concert Hall with free admission to see Nobuntu -- the award-winning, all-female a cappella quintet from Zimbabwe -- AND a free Transit Day Pass, so you can spend more time enjoying the music and less time circling UT-Austin for parking.

6:30 PM | CHECK-IN | Meet us at 7000 Manor/Susquehanna -- by Winn Elementary -- to get a free ticket to the performance AND a Capital Metro Day Pass!

7:30 PM | NOBUNTU | Runtime: 120 min | Texas Performing Arts, in partnership with KAZI-FM, present Nobuntu. The word “Nobuntu” defines an African concept valuing humbleness, love, unity, and family from a woman’s perspective. This award-winning, all-female a cappella quintet from Zimbabwe has drawn international acclaim for its fusion of traditional music, afro-jazz, and gospel. Their rich, pure voices and exhilarating rhythms are accompanied by minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments, and authentic dance in an effort to preserve their cultural heritage while also promoting positive change through the unifying power of music.

TEXAS PERFORMING ARTS' rich history began on March 6, 1981, as The Performing Arts Center at The University of Texas at Austin, with a performance by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in the newly constructed Bass Concert Hall. The $44 million building was the university's largest construction project to date. Later joined by four other venues—including Bates Recital Hall, and the McCullough, Payne, and Brockett Theatres—Texas Performing Arts has become one of the most important contributors of cultural life in Central Texas.

SMART TRIPS AUSTIN is a collaboration between the City of Austin and Capital Metro that aims to reduce single occupant vehicle trips and increase trips taken by foot, bike, bus or shared car. Participants in the Zilker, Bouldin Creek and Travis Heights neighborhoods who sign-up can order resources like maps, brochures, and special rewards and will be invited to neighborhood walks, social bike rides, and transit adventures through the end of January 2018.

TRANSIT ADVENTURES is a transportation demand management (TDM) program designed to increase transit ridership and reduce parking demand among participants. Capital Metro hosts the program to provide transit training in a risk-free, low-stakes environment for groups of 10 - 40 people and can organize a team-building trip for FREE for your office, neighborhood group, organization, church or school using our transit services. Contact us and let us plan a Transit Adventure for your group!
