Austin Now: CALL AND RESPONSE

April 18 at 5:00 pm

CALL AND RESPONSE

with Thomas Echols & Invoke

Presented in partnership with KMFA Classical 89.5

Sunday April 18, 2021 at 5PM CDT

Free, Donations Welcome

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. Participants were asked questions about what music means to them, and their responses helped steer the program. We’d love your participation too! There are some optional questions in the form below, if you answer them, we might include your replies in our blogs and slides related to the concert.

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.

Fill out the form below and a confirmation with the link to view the performance will be sent to you via email. We’ll follow up with a reminder a few days before the event goes live on Youtube.

This event is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department
and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
