Many of you know this already (possibly because I talk about it all the time, or because I’ve blogged about it before), but I work for this INCREDIBLE group in Austin called REVEL. They are an Austin-based classical band, with a mission that attracted me before I even heard their music. It goes as follows:
Clap between movements if you feel like it.
Laugh when the music is funny.
Cry when the music is sad.
Come as you are.
Hang out with the musicians.
Savor every moment.
Forget the rules.
Let yourself be moved.
Make up your own story.
Feed your soul.
Get carried away.
Listen with abandon.
I’m sorry, doesn’t this sound like something YOU’D like to be a part of??
Their wonderful approach to the classical music performance is only surpassed by their INCREDIBLE musicianship. These people are true artists. And I love them.
Last weekend, they had their first concerts of the season. It was glorious and exhausting and wonderful. And this:
Free concert. Ballet Austin. BYOB. A wonderful turnout with glorious people. A view of the street through those amazing windows. It was magical!
Can’t wait until their December concert!!
