Nine years ago, Audio Under the Stars made its debut in Durham. From that first night to today, we’ve been awed and humbled by your enthusiasm and unwavering support.

We’ve been a little quiet lately, but want to let you know we’ve been busy behind the scenes. After much reflection on the past few years, we realized we needed to step back from live events for a moment and spend 2023 focused on strategic planning.

We’re looking to build relationships with potential funders, audio producing organizations, venues, and local volunteers to make sure AUTS is sustainable in the future. If this is you, (or if you’d like to contribute in another capacity), please reach out to us at We are already laying the groundwork for events in 2024 and would love to add more voices to that conversation.

We always treasure audience feedback, so if you have ever taken a moment to dream big AUTS dreams, we’d love to know what you imagine. (And if you’re so inclined, you can make a tax-deductible donation here.

Thank you for sharing your ears, your company, and your hearts all these years. We can’t wait to listen with you again soon.
