WEATHER UPDATE, 4/6: It’s raining! This means we’re going with the inclement weather plan for today’s Austin Cultural Campus Spring Concert Crawl. Instead of one of the four spots being Mark di Suvero’s sculpture, we’ll be in the POB atrium (at Speedway & 24th) where Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculpture, “Vermillion”, is on view. All other locations are the same. See you soon!
Austin’sCultural Campus (ACC) is looking forward to co-hosting the annual spring Concert Crawl on Sunday, 6 April with free admission and live music. This innovative and fun music concert series is co-presented with the Butler School of Music. A series of short, informal music concerts performed by talented students of the Butler School of Music will be presented at four of Austin’s most popular cultural destinations. Concert programs will begin at 1:00pm, 2:00pm, and 3:00pm at each venue. Each mini-concert will feature a variety of music masterworks specifically chosen to respond to the art and collections exhibited at the museums. Travel from each location to hear all four music programs, and enjoy an inspiring afternoon of music, history, art, and fun. Kick off the afternoon at whichever spot you like, and then visit the rest in the order that strikes your fancy. The weather is predicted to be sunny, beautiful, and in the low to mid 70s.
A trombone quartet will perform a selection of trombone quartets at Mark di Suvero’s Clock Knot in Landmarks’ public art collection (the tall red abstract sculpture located on the lawn at the corner of East Dean Keeton & Speedway streets). At the Harry Ransom Center (300 West 21st Street), a string quartet will perform Beethoven’s Opus 59, No. 1. At the Blanton Museum of Art (200 E Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard), a piano trio will perform Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons. And right across the street from the Blanton, The Bullock Texas State History Museum (1800 Congress Avenue, will feature a wind quartet performing John Harbison’s Quintet for Winds.
