String Fling in Cedar Park
Sat Feb 11 2023 at 03:00 pm to 05:30 pm
House Concert | Austin, TX
About this Event
What could possibly be better than a concert with our old friends in Invoke? How about adding MORE great string players into the mix!
This February, Beerthoven will feature an expanded Invoke ensemble with violist Ruben Balboa and cellist Denise Ro. On top of a set of works just for the Invoke gang, they'll all come together for the unique quintet Cymbeline for mandolin and string quartet by David Bruce as well as the String Sextet by Peter Schickele. A "string fling" with sextet? We think PDQ Bach would approve.
Thanks to our sponsors, we will be serving warm pastries and cold beer generously provided by Easy Tiger and Lazarus Brewing as well as wine and non-alcoholic beverages--all at no additional cost!
Kids are welcome! Tickets for children as well as students through college age are available for $10. Purchase at the door or email [email protected] for advance student tickets.
Details for Mystery Venue
Out of respect for the privacy of our hosts, we will only reveal the exact location of this performance to ticket purchasers. This program's mystery venue will host our Saturday performance in zip code 78613 (Cedar Park, TX) near Vista Ridge High School. For tickets to our Friday, February 10th and Sunday, February 12th performances, please visit this page.
While we cannot guarantee full accessibility for those with disabilities at this particular performance, there will be no stairs to enter the space (perhaps with the exception of one or two steps). Parking will be on-street close to the venue. There will be greater access for those with disabilities at our February 10th and 12th performances.
We encourage all members of our community to get vaccinated and boosted as this is the best way to ensure that our concert can proceed without additional safety requirements. Beerthoven will follow federal and local guidelines closely to determine appropriate safety protocols in the event of another Covid surge. As of this writing, the CDC has determined that the level of risk in Austin is medium. If this situation holds we therefore intend to produce the concert without requiring masking or social distancing. In the event of another surge we may adjust our requirements and notify our ticketed guests in advance of the performance.
The critically-acclaimed Beerthoven Concert Series is a down-to-earth, approachable celebration of classical song, chamber music, and beer; a quirky mixture of Bach and Doppelbock in unique and intimate settings. Beerthoven finds its inspiration in the musical and festive events of the Austin Saengerrunde as well as the private "salon" concerts of Beethoven's time. Beerthoven events feature live classical music, free beer, and other refreshments and snacks in an all-inclusive manner. There is no backstage here; audience members may even find themselves standing in line for beer with the performers.
Programming is intentionally diverse in tone, instrumentation, and featured performers. Beerthoven supports local artists by offering fair compensation and unique performance venues. Audience members will find our prices at the very low end of typical classical concerts--especially for students and especially given the high quality of the exbeerience.
