The Texas Performing Atrs Classical Music Task Force is a group of Austinites who care about the vitality of the city’s classical music community and who gather to discuss how we might work together to build a more vibrant, sustainable, and highly engaged atmosphere for classical music in Austin.  Some of the Task Force’s initiatives include researching successful classical music engagement initiatives in comparable communities, studying the current climate for classical music in Austin, exploring existing interdisciplinary collaborations in Austin and in comparable communities, and identifying real and perceived barriers to greater participation in Austin.  Follow The Task Force blog as well as our Twitter account (@classicalforce) to learn more about the Task Force as it evolves and its work to support on ongoing dialogue surrounding classical music in the “Live Music Capital of The World.”
