EARLY MUSIC IDOL

June 6 — Austin  •  June 7 — San Antonio

In our first ever audience-participation concert, you’ll get to vote on the merits of four starry-eyed up-and-coming (read: little-known) Baroque composers to decide who gets to be the next Early Music Idol! We’ll have four local early music celebrity judges on hand, with each pleading the case of one of four composers you’ve probably never heard of, but should have! Will the winner be the suave and debonair Frenchman, the powdered-wigged Englishman, the practical, hardworking German, or the pious yet passionate Spaniard? You make the call!

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.
