This year’s Austin Chamber Music Festival plays outside, and online


Signaling a cautious return to live performance, this year’s Austin Chamber Music Festival will take place both outdoors and online.

Live concerts will be held Thursday evenings from May 27 through June 24 on the front lawn of the Neill-Cochran House Museum. Seating pods of one-to-four people will be spaced six feet apart and masks will be required. Venue capacity is very limited.

For those who’d rather watch online, a livestream option will be available too.

The festival lineup includes the Artisan Quartet, indie foursome Invoke, piano trio Artina McCain and friends, and the Schumann Chamber Players. See

Built by enslaved people in 1855, the Neill-Cochran House Museum is owned and operated by the Texas chapter of the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America. Behind the Greek Revival mansion is a small building known as The Dependency that is the only slave quarters structure still standing in Austin.
