Lucky Music Mailer: March 2019

"Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music."
-George Eliot

Hello Friends!
This is an exciting month in the Austin music scene, as the big SXSW Festival will be taking place March 8th-17th. Whether you’ve purchased tickets or not, there are plenty of things to look forward to–such as a FREE concert this weekend featuring our wonderful teacher, Trevor Villwock! See the flyer below for more details. Here at the school, we’re continuing our strong forward momentum with more opportunities, more changes, and more music. Be sure to follow us on social media to keep up with all the cool things happening both inside the school and out, and as always, thank you for being here!

Come support our very own Trevor Villwock THIS WEEKEND for two shows featuring his latest composition, “dreaming of zeno”. The members of Inversion Ensemble will be performing on Saturday, March 2nd and Sunday, March 3rd. Both are FREE to attend, so come help us congratulate one of our amazing teachers on his accomplishment!

Not everyone can afford a ticket to SXSW; luckily, there are plenty of free events happening around town! Girls Rock Austin is hosting a SXSW party at the Batch on Friday, March 15th. Join them for a day of food, music, and fun!

 

For a deeper SXSW experience, tune in to ACL Radio 93.3 throughout the week of the festival to hear live music and interviews from featured artists! Supported by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
