It's May, it's M..... August, the Pretty Darned Hot Month of August

Danny Johnson

Speaking of hot…


And so, like all reasonable people, we are taking it easy, looking forward to the cooler season before we get busy! Ha. Not really. The “reasonable” part should have given it away. We are preparing for our season opener in September: “Oh Henry! The World of Purcell” (more on that in the next post) AND we’re also preparing for a special event during the same week as the Purcell concert! We are excited to announce a special FREE concert at UT on Sept. 18, from 3pm–5pm, in Bates Recital Hall. We’ve had the good fortune to collaborate with the renowned Sephardic music specialist, Dr. Edwin Seroussi, who will give a brief talk and then members of TEMP will perform, including Jenifer Thyssen, Cayla Cardiff, Gil Zilkha, harpist Therese Honey, and more. Enjoy these audio teasers from our La Rosa and Night & Day CDs and read the details below about this exciting event. Y’all come!

Hope you had a more reasonable summer! More soon!

Parking Information for Sephardic Songs

Parking is, unfortunately, not free, but the San Jacinto Parking Garage is right across the street from the Music building. The map below shows the location of the parking garage and Bates Recital Hall. Park in the garage and walk across the street. Enter the doors to MRH. Go straight through the hallway to the very end and you’ll see the big staircase leading to the entrance of Bates Recital Hall. See you there!

TEMP Complaints_banner-border.jpg

Firstly, I offer my sincere apologies: I meant to write this blog earlier this week, but ever since the time change I have been trying to make up for that MIA hour. You'd think I would get used to it at some point. . . 

Anyway, it's been a far busier first-quarter year than we are used to, with lots of school and outreach concerts in January, a huge and unusual and unique concert in February, and lots of grant applications in anticipation of our 20th season next year.  And then there was the Amplify Austin campaign in March. Yay!!


THANKS SO MUCH to all who donated to support our planned recording of the original Carmina Burana repertoire! We've raised more than $8K for that project and need to raise a bit more to go before we can proceed, but it's in our plans! 

Also in our plans: This Sunday (March 18 at 7:00pm) we have another outreach concert, this time for the residents at Westminster! And up next is the concert in which we get to tell it like it really is. Yes, the Complaints concert! It's a funny (and fun) concept, but the music is strikingly beautiful and oftentimes bittersweet—except for when we're just being grumpy! See all the details below and buy your tickets now for this musical kvetch-fest!

Beware the Ides of March!

“I am, therefore I complain.” Humans have always had things to complain about, ranging from life-threatening, quality-of-life issues to conjured or superficial annoyances that simply don’t fit into the notion of what a good day should hold. Our musical exploration of complaining has an eclectic array of music from Medieval times through the Baroque: Scottish Ballads, French chansons, Dowland madrigals, powerful selections from passionate Italians (Monteverdi, Carissimi, and Sances) and more. Lots of beauty, some sadness (maybe a few tears in those complaints) and quite a few laughs! With guest Ryland Angel (countertenor), and more!
