Classical Music Kegger

When: Sat., May 7, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Pianos face grim prospects in their final years — humid garages, demolition by teenagers, the Craigslist unknown. With his Classical Music Kegger series, Austin composer Nathan Felix offers a more productive retirement, refurbishing the instruments for his lush compositions and for donation to low-income schools. Writing for six pianos, Felix adopts the style of Steve Reich, with overlapping lines of polyrhythm and harmonic texture. After a first kegger in Austin, he teams up with the Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio at the former A. Grona Mattress Factory.
