Forces of Nature logo

We close our sixth season with 18th-century orchestral music inspired by Mother Nature herself! From Haydn’s symphonic morning scene (Symphony no. 6, “Le matin”) to Jean-Féry Rebel’s musical depiction of the Ancient Greek creation myth (Les Élemens), you’ll readily see that many baroque and classical composers found abundant inspiration for their music right outside their front door. We'll close with the Brandenburg Concerto no. 1 by J.S. Bach, whose genius itself was a force of nature! Join us in Austin on May 6th or in San Antonio on May 7th.

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.
