2018 Official Showcase Presenter
Golden Hornet and KMFA Present the 4th annual alt-classical ATX Composers Showcase, featuring an array of local talent creating new music in our town. KMFA’s Chris Johnson will be co-hosting the event alongside composer-bandleader-improvisor Graham Reynolds. Drawing on the collaborative spirit of rock bands and the composer-led nature of classical music, Golden Hornet is an Austin nonprofit which commissions new music, fosters young and emerging composers, and presents adventurous works in non-traditional settings. Led by the artistic direction of Reynolds, the annual ATX Composers Showcase highlights some of those adventurous works rooted right here in Austin. As in years prior, KMFA 89.5 is the independent public classical radio station tirelessly supporting our work and those of the new music movement.
Date: Wednesday, March 14
Venue: The Hideout (617 Congress Ave)
