Covid throw off your groove?
It's time to Get Your Groove Bach!
Join us on the front lawn of the Neill-Cochran House Museum evenings June 25th to 27th for three LIVE (yes, that's IN-PERSON) performances by Austin's own Bel Cuore Quartet! They'll have some saxy selections to share with you including J.S. Bach's Chaconne from Violin Partita No. 2 in D Minor, movements from Marc Mellits' Groove Machine, Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin, Piazolla's Histoire du Tango, and more.
In return to our usual format, we will be serving warm pastries and cold beer generously provided by Easy Tiger and Lazarus Brewing--at no additional cost! In addition, all attendees will be allowed one free visit to the Neill-Cochran House Museum's exhibits (voucher to be used at a different time than the day of performance, as the performance takes place after museum hours).
Beerthoven events are family-friendly--kids are welcome!
Student Rush Tickets will be sold at the door the day of the show for $10 until capacity is reached.
About Bel Cuore:
Lauded for their “high-energy” and “impressive” performances, the Bel Cuore Quartet (BCQ) has been sharing visceral and compelling chamber music with audiences since 2009. Twice nominated for “Best Classical Ensemble” by the Austin Critics’ Table, the quartet focuses on works by living composers to create engaging and memorable experiences for audiences.
BCQ has performed concerts all over the world, including engagements at the SXSW music festival, the Sibelius Academy for Music in Helsinki, Finland, the Contagious Sounds series in New York City, Marfa Public Radio, KQUE Hum Tum Radio in Houston, and the Fast Forward Festival for new music. BCQ has worked closely with leading composers such as Jennifer Higdon, John Corigliano, Steven Snowden, Ian Dicke, Donald Grantham, Christopher Stark, Victor Marquez, Asha Srinivasan, David Biedenbender, and Robert Honstein in various chamber and large ensemble configurations.
They have been featured as performers on several commercial recordings on the Naxos, Mark Masters, and Longhorn labels, including Over the Rainbow and Bach Again, Tex Sax Next Generation and Circus Maximus, all available on iTunes. Visit https://www.belcuorequartet.com/ for more info.
