About Symphony on the Bay:
“When I first moved to the island, I noticed there was a huge potential for classical instruments in a non-traditional environment. Symphony on the Bay is an answer to that demand in our community. It’s a way to provide a unique listening experience against the backdrop of our beloved scenery. So I’ve handpicked my favorite and most versatile colleagues from Austin and Houston, TX to create a string octet – 4 violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos – capable of performing almost anything! We’ll be preparing a little something for everyone: arrangements of Symphonic works and well-known Classical themes, Pop/Rock music, Jazz/Broadway standards, and even some Movie Soundtracks. It’ll be a ‘chills-inducing’ night of music and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.” -Jen Mulhern, cellist
