with Thomas Echols & Invoke

Presented in partnership with KMFA Classical 89.5

CALL AND RESPONSE is an exploration into memory, meaning, and the not-so-obvious threads that connect us all over Austin.

Streamed live from KMFA’s new Draylen Mason Music Studio, the genre-blurring string quartet Invoke alongside wildly creative Thomas Echols will fashion a lush musical journey with guitar, strings, and electronics.

Inspired by our community, CALL AND RESPONSE was developed in collaboration with students from Austin Soundwaves, older adults at the Rebekah Baines Johnson Center, and co-artistic directors Carla McElhaney and Joe Williams. This unique project is presented in partnership with KMFA Classical 89.5 as part of their intergenerational Star Notes Project, with support from the St. David’s Foundation.
