BEERTHOVEN CONCERT SERIES
Beerthoven's landmark Season 10 is chilled and ready to serve with five programs and three performances of every program, giving you plenty of opportunity to put a Season Pass to good use! Like last season we'll be offering five programs with three performances of each including classic favorites, music by living composers, and a world premiere!
September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th
Featuring Sarah Oliver on harp and Jaleen Seshadri on oboe, this program of romantic and contemporary music will guide the listener through the story of creation, including works such as Oblivion by Astor Piazzolla, Great Day by Nancy Gustavson, and Song to the Moon by Antonín Dvořák.
November 17th, 18th, and 19th
Saúde! We're taking a musical trip down to Brazil and Argentina for this concert celebrating tango and the spirit of passion, heartbreak, and nostalgia that is infused into its insatiable rhythm. Fall in love this Fall with Carna-Fall, featuring Duo-B with Hirono Borter on Violin and Philip Borter on Cello.
December 10th, 17th, and 23rd
Four calling birds are back for this program of original arrangements of your favorite holiday classics! Come sip some hot cocoa or cold beer with us once again on the lawn of the historic Neill-Cochran House Museum and listen to some caroling like no other.

Invoke is taking a look back in time this February through the lens of two new works for their unique quartet; Jonathan Bingham's The Lessons of History and the world premiere of original Austinite David Wilborn's string quartet Giddings Remembered . The program will also feature a set of Invoke originals and a few other surprises.
April 26th, 27th, and 28th
If you've ever stepped out of an HEB during the last week of April and felt like you were in an Alfred Hitchcock movie you know that Austin is a place for birds! This April we're raising our glasses to our flying, feathered friends during the peak of their season and ours for the final concert of our Tenth Season; Tequila Mockingbird! Featuring soprano Charissa Whillock and violinist Christabel Lin performing works by Stephen Sondheim, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and much more accompanied by Daniel Swayze at the piano.
Thanks to our sponsors, all events will include 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!
Beerthoven events are General Admission only and do not offer assigned seating.
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.
Beerthoven began in 2014 as an auxiliary of the Austin Saengerrunde, combining the club's love of great German music and great German beer. Since 2015 Beerthoven has functioned as an independent non-profit and includes non-Germanic music in its programming. The Saengerrunde continues to serve as the primary venue and major sponsor of Beerthoven.
