The Blanton Museum of Art “Secrets of Stradivarius”

Ensemble ATX

2312 San Gabriel St, Austin, TX 78705,

The 18th century, also known as the Golden Period, marked the pinnacle of evolution in violin design and craftsmanship. Italy became the cradle of this craft producing instruments of unparalleled sonority and beauty, still coveted to this day. This September, ATX Music proudly partners with Reuning & Sons Violins in presenting over $100 million worth of the world’s most magnificent instruments right here in Austin. Throughout the week, a museum exhibit will grant an up-close look at these masterpieces, revealing their intricate craftsmanship and storied past. On Sept. 7th, Austinites will have the unique opportunity to experience the magical sound in person, during an evening of sublime music performed by Ensemble ATX.

Before and after the concert, enjoy fine Italian wines, craft cocktails sponsored by Campari, and gourmet Italian appetizers, available for purchase.
