Serenata Gala


Serenata Co-Chairs Bruno Brunner and Eva Womack hope you will join them for Austin Opera’s major annual fundraiser, Serenata, on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin!

Gail & Jeff Kodosky

This past season’s gala, A Celebration of Stars, was held on March 5th and applauded those that make Austin Opera the very special company it is. Chaired by Sylvia Jabour and Mary Ellen Borgelt, party guests were transported to Hollywood, the City of Stars.  The evening included a gourmet four-course dinner curated by Executive Chef Elmar Prambs, delectable California wines selected by our wine and spirit sponsor Twin Liquors, luxury live and silent auctions, a performance by star baritone Emmett O’Hanlon, live jazz music and dancing.

As well as celebrating 2022 honorees Gail and Jeff Kodosky, our Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Timothy Myers, our General Director & CEO Annie Burridge, and the incredible artists who grace the stage at the Long Center each season, Serenata helps raise vital funds for Austin Opera’s thrilling productions, engaging community initiatives, and innovative digital offerings.
