Under The Stars: A Benefit Concert says
Join us on February 19th at 7pm at the University Christian Church for the debut concert of Dionysus, an emerging artist that is sure to be a night to remember! This FREE concert will feature music from Faurè, Donaudy, Gershwin, and Shubert to covers of songs by Sam Smith, John Legend, Sinatra, and Billy Joel. Donations are welcome with all proceeds going to fund a trip to Italy for their annual choral festival The Passion of Italy w/Craig Hella Johnson.

Please join in for this celebration of all types of music whether it be Classical, musical, jazz, alternative, R&B, or Pop. Accompanied by the immensely talented Jon P. Starling, strings from University of Texas' orchestra as well as spoken word by the lovely Amaris Smith there will surely be something for all who attend!

About the artist:

Dionysus, Bass, studied music education at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Where he participated in the University Chorale, Chamber Singers, and men’s chorus. In his time at A&M he was also an active participant in The University Playhouse Theatre starring in stage plays and musicals alike. Under the leadership of Dr. Jennifer Glidden he played a key role in reviving the Musical/Opera Scenes Workshop with his iteration of Porgy from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. He also had the pleasure of premiering James Syler's Symphony NO.1 "Blue" in Carnegie Hall with the University Chorale and Wind Ensemble.

Dionysus has been fortunate to have performed with many ensembles throughout the city of Austin. Most notably Conspirare Symphonic Choir, Amphion Youth Choir's summer chorale and winter chamber ensemble. St. Louis King of France Catholic choir, and St. Johns United Methodist Chorus. He is currently studying voice with Grammy-nominee Laura Mercado-Wright and is also teaching voice at Crockett Highschool here in Austin, Tx.
