Get ready for a musical blast from the past on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6 when the The Austin Civic Orchestra presents That 80’s Concert as this year’s free pops concert at the Zilker Hillside Theater. Take a walk down memory lane starting at 8 p.m. with live performances from your favorite music from the 1980’s — from Back to the Future and E.T. theme songs to Van Halen and much more. They will also have a raffle drawing to award one lucky audience member (per night) a chance to conduct John Phillip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.”


The ACO will be performing:
