The Austin Bella Corda, is an ensemble of award winning guitarists, most of them not yet old enough to drive. These accomplished young musicians are some of the nation's top youth competition winners and this is, of course, impressive on it's own. But more than that the Austin Bella Corda performs a melodious, inspiring repertoire of original music composed entirely for them. The pieces range from New-Renaissance, a Sephardic melange, Post Modern to Afropop and are performed by this collection of gifted musicians with skill, ease, and joy and it all adds up to a stellar experience of innovative music. You won't believe your ears! ' ... they blew me away. ...their program entertained me more than some of the more renowned classical performers. The young musicians play with an emotional sensibility way beyond their years.' Jason Boyd, 'Et Cetera' "The music is fun and original and the students play it to the hilt!' Austin American Statesman 'It is a rare thing to hear a young and gifted guitarist. To hear more than one is an enormous delight. Hearing Bella Corda is an invitation to something fresh and exciting...' Marc Cruz.
