On Saturday, September 22, 2018, the Women’s Symphony League of Austin showcased its newest gem: The 2018 Jewel Ball – An Austin Tradition. With a history spanning over six decades, the Jewel Ball is truly the essential Austin Tradition, with families celebrating several generations of participation in this exquisite event. For Austin, the Jewel Ball represents the zenith of the social season, an evening of unmatched entertainment and elegance.
The Jewel Ball annually honors local families for their support of the Austin Symphony Orchestra with a Royal Court presentation. Fellow members of the Texas Association for Symphony Orchestras are invited to honor symphony patrons from their communities as members of the Visiting Jewel Court. The Jewel Ball is also the primary fundraising event for the Austin Symphony Orchestra, the oldest symphony in Texas performing for more than 100 years.
