Austin’s Cultural Campus Concert Crawl
Apr 06, 2013
The Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music and Austin's Cultural Campus presented a Cultural Campus Concert Crawl.
On April 6, students from the Butler School of Music performed short, informal chamber music concerts in five museums from Austin’s Cultural Campus. Each mini concert featured a variety of chamber music masterworks, specifically chosen to respond to the art and ephemera exhibited at each museums. Concerts began at 1 pm and repeated continuously, on the hour until 4 pm.
LBJ Library and Center: The LBJ Library houses the historical documents, telephone recordings, video, artifacts and photographs of President Lyndon Johnson to let researchers and the public render their own verdict as to his place in history. The Library features three floors of interactive exhibits to educate visitors about legislation passed during LBJ’s years in the White House. To celebrate LBJ’s heroic legacy for African American civil rights, the Butler School presented a concert of jazz from the 1960s with famous tunes by Miles Davis and Charles Mingus, brilliant African American composers that overcame oppression and segregation to change the history of music and American culture.
