Who We Are - What We Do - Why We Do It

Riverbend Centre for the Arts is a non-profit wholly owned by Riverbend. We strive to enrich and inspire the lives of all the citizens of the community in a Family Friendly and inspirational environment. We present performances of quality and artistic excellence to the community. We have hosted a wide range of the world's finest musicians ranging from The Austin Symphony to Willie Nelson.

We offer education in multiple artistic disciplines, including music, art, theater and dance; and provide service to the larger community that may not otherwise be available through school systems or other community organizations, thus allowing non-professional and/or developing artists, actors and musicians venues for their artistic expression. This purpose is intended to be secular in its focus, inclusive in its practice and the programs of this Corporation will remain open to the general public.

This past fall we launced our new School of Music at Riverbend. Several of Austin's finest music specialists have developed programs directed to vocalists and musicians of all ages and genres.
