REVEL, the classical band, returns to the Uptown Blanco Ballroom this Saturday, February 9 at 7:30 with a program from their newest CD, The Magic Hour. Violinist Carmelo de los Santos, cellist Joel Becktell, and pianist Carla McElhaney form this animatedly passionate group of performers. Their program covers a wide range of musical styles: Beethoven’s “Ghost” trio, Autumn from the Four Seasons by Argentine tango master Piazolla, Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel, Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, and Swing Shift by young American composer/violist Kenji Bunch.
NowPlayingAustin.com says, “What a stellar group! The feel of a REVEL concert is unlike that of any other chamber group. The way they seamlessly incorporate classical and contemporary music into one concert is both enlightening and refreshing.”
