Here in Austin, the summer of music is upon us. In addition to the high number of musical acts flocking to our city during this month of July, the 17th Annual Austin Chamber Music Festival begins July 11 and goes through the 28th and will feature the beautiful chamber music of acts from across the country in various Austin venues. We at KUTX have been lucky enough to have a few of the festival’s featured bands, including the Aeolus Quartet, who stopped by earlier this month, and Badi Assad, who stopped by this past Friday, grace our studio with live performances.
We also had the Eroica Trio in our studio this Monday, July 22nd. Pianist Erika Nickrenz, violinist Sara Parkins, and cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio, make up the Eroica Trio, and they create personal, passionate music that makes for incredible onstage chemistry. They have been nominated for multiple Grammy awards throughout their career, and are known for having performed the Beethoven Triple Concerto more frequently than any other trio in the world. They feel so strongly about the benefits of music that they have performed at homeless shelters, senior centers, and prisons.
