A Concert to Die For - Sat., Oct. 18, 2014 8 pm

Two Star Symphony is known as the most unusual music ensemble in Houston. In this band each representative is also a composer, unlike any other classical band. Music is created with each member bringing their own piece to make one magnificent sound. Two Star Symphony memorizes all music and focus' more on the sounds of their instruments than following along a sheet of paper. Their dark and distinctive sound will impress listeners new and old.


Ancient Cat Society delivers amazing folk/bluegrass harmonies by Buxton band front man Sergio Trevino and the enchanting Haley Barnes, along with band mate Austin Sepulvado on guitar.The group's bare-bones spirituals of faith, doubt and discovery have drawn droves of roots-minded, reverent hipsters to their performances.

The performance takes place in the former Stringer Mortuary building located on the east side of Stonewall just south of the downtown square in what is now occupied by local artist studio, Downtown Art Party. Completed in 1925, details of the building's Egyptian Revival architecture can still be seen. Tickets include concert with Two Star Symphony and Ancient Cat Society, adult beverages and light snacks. No reserve seating. Limited Seating.
