Monthly Meeting Schedule

Our normal meeting schedule is on the second Saturday of each month from 1-3pm. Occasionally we will switch to a different week, either because of conflicts or to accommodate the church's calendar. Please see the schedule below for projected meeting dates and times for the 2019-20 season.

We meet at the Austin Mennonite Church, 5801 Westminster Drive, here in Austin. Here's a closeup satellite map to show you exactly where the most convenient parking is.

The September meeting performance was "to honor the memory of our friend and mentor, Robert Motl (1957-2019). He was the founder of our small group, including his wife, Rory Motl. Rob was an award-winning composer and teacher. Under his mentorship our skills and musicality developed further. We miss him greatly.

He was the originator of The Octet Project, and musicians from the Austin Symphony performed under his guidance. A recording was released in November 2017. Sadly, the Project will not see further development that Rob had planned."
