Online Concert Event — November 21, 2020

One of music’s greatest powers is its ability to wordlessly express the extreme depths of human emotion. 2020 brought to us much loss, sadness, and destruction, but there remains for many of us a strong sense of hope for the future. Through this collection of Spanish, Portuguese, Mexican, and Peruvian choral works with texts relating to loss and hope, we seek to, in our own humble way, honor and remember those who’ve been lost, and to express hope for a brighter future. Recorded in high definition video and audio at historic Mission Concepción in San Antonio, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this program will include music by Lôbo, Magalhães, Padilla, Guerrero, Morales, 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.
