You’re invited to join us at Scholz Garten 607 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701) immediately following Canticle to toast the March Moderns Festival. Conspirare will be providing beverages and appetizers.
Surround yourself in a sensual sound bath with Canticle, Kile Smith’s ethereal setting of the Spiritual Canticle of the 15th century mystic, St. John of the Cross. This luminous festival closer features the choir, three celli, and vibraphone. “Arresting beauty” and “shimmering spirituality” are just a few phrases used by critics to describe Kile Smith’s music.
Listen before you attend!
