Fast Forward Austin presents Charting Influences
Charting Influences is an immersive concert experience exploring inspiration and the creative process. Culminating with the U.S. premiere of U.K. composer Charlotte Bray’s "Caught in Treetops," the program includes specific musical and literary influences on Bray’s work. This tapestry of inspiration weaves jazz, poetry, and contemporary classical music into a seamless program, featuring performances by Peter Bay (Austin Symphony), Sarah Silver (San Antonio Symphony), Kathryn Findlen, Tom Echols, the Graeme Francis Quartet, and the Fast Forward Austin Orchestra.
Both a regional and international collaboration, Charting Influences combines innovative programming concepts, cutting-edge contemporary classical music, and the brightest stars of Austin and central Texas.
