Event Series Event Series: Austin Uncomducted X Marvis Dixon

Austin Uncomducted X Marvis Dixon

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Curated by local craft beer aficionado Marvis “The Middleman” Dixon, this concert celebrates the way that things we may not expect, like a good beer or a new song, can spark a conversation and bring people together. Each piece highlights the way an orchestra can be a gathering place, with each composer reflecting the diversity that we love to see in Austin.

Always excited to welcome new friends into our growing family, this will be our biggest iteration of Austin Unconducted yet, featuring winds, percussion, and piano in addition to the string musicians you know and love.

As always, join us early for complimentary drinks and hang out afterwards to meet the musicians.
6:00pm – Complimentary Happy Hour
7:00pm – Concert
8:00pm – Reception and Musician Meet & Greet

The Program:
🎵 Only Ever Us – Paul Wiancko
🎵 Sagrada – Adolphus Hailstork
🎵 Against/Sharp – Brittany Green
🎵 Stay On It – Julius Eastman
