We'll ring in our seventh season with rarely-performed music by Baroque composers who are household names! We won't play Pachelbel's Canon in D, but rather one of his Parthie a 5 for strings, and we'll also bring out the original version of Bach's Concerto for Oboe & Violin, more often performed in its arrangement for two harpsichords. We'll have some opera, too, with arias from Vivaldi and Rameau. Finally, we'll commemorate the 250th anniversary of the death of Georg Philipp Telemann with a performance of his oratorio Der Tag des Gerichts (The Day of Judgement), written when he was a youthful 81 years of age! Join us in Austin on September 23rd or in San Antonio on September 24th.

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.
