Online Concert Event — May 15, 2021

Ten years ago, our original plan was to be a chamber ensemble – somehow along the way we grew larger! We’ll commemorate the midpoint of our tenth season with a return to the original conception we had for our band, in a program of chamber music curated and performed by seven of our principal players. We’ve selected a smörgåsbord of chamber music from all over Europe, and we’ll present each piece to you introduced by the player who selected it. They’ll tell you why they chose it, their favorite things about it, and make note of points you’ll want to keep an ear out for. You’ll be entertained, and get to learn about our individual tastes in music all at the same time! Music by Handel, Telemann, Leclair, Haydn, and more.

Who are we?

Never been interested in classical music? Maybe you've been listening to the wrong century! We invite you to come and give us a shot—you might just find there's a little less dust on our music than you think. We're breathing new life into some of the most beautiful music ever written, and we're doing it with a youthful energy and colorful uniqueness that you'd expect from an Austin born-and-bred ensemble.
