Blanco Performing Arts is pleased to welcome REVEL back to the Uptown Blanco Ballroom on Saturday evening, February 9 at 7:30pm. REVEL’s trio of award-winning artists, violinist Cármelo de los Santos, cellist Joel Becktell and pianist Carla McElhaney, will take you on a journey that will change everything you think about classical music. From soulful masterworks to passionate tangos, from fresh, new innovations to classic rock, REVEL will alternately break your heart and have you dancing on the edge of your seat.
Through the ages, classical musicians have held back-room parties and jam sessions, where the real music-making happens. This is how REVEL—more “classical band” than chamber ensemble—has captured the hearts of music lovers around the world: by returning classical music to its radical roots, gathering in intimate settings to let their hair down and revel in great music. These intimate, live music events, or “revels,” are held in a variety of unique, sometimes unexpected, and utterly magical venues, including beautiful private homes, ballet studios, coffee houses, ballrooms, recording studios, and artists’ live/work lofts. Come as you are and enjoy breathtaking live music as it was meant to be experienced!
Tickets are available at blancoperformingarts.com or by calling 830-833-4762. Music will include music by Beethoven, Piazzolla, contemporary American composer Kenji Bunch, Simon and Garfunkel, and Led Zeppelin from their newest CD, Magic Hour.
