Every March we team up with SXSW and KMFA Classical 89.5 to present the ATX Composers Showcase, an array of local new music and contemporary classical talent brought onto stage in the height of the city wide festival.

The showcase features six ensembles over the course of the night, fostering exposure to local groups leading the charge on revitalizing classical music for the modern age, offered to SXSW badge holders and non-holders alike.

The intimate concert was previously hosted at The Hideout, and in 2019 we transitioned to Parker Jazz Club, where audiences enjoyed cocktail seating and a full bar as they enjoyed a pristine listening experience.

Previously featured ensembles have included acts such as Mother Falcon, Kraken Quartet, Local Opera Local Artists, Invoke, Line Upon Line Percussion, Thalea, Tetractys, and Golden Hornet Artistic Director Graham Reynolds among others.
