ACG Artist-in-Residency Program

The Elements was commissioned by Austin Classical Guitar as part of ACG’s annual Artist-in-Residency Program. This program engages world class artists to connect with Austin and create new works in collaboration with, and for, our community. Residencies are designed and led by ACG’s Director of Music Education and Music & Healing Travis Marcum, and ACG’s Artistic Director, Joe Williams, ACG Artistic Director.

Our 22-23 Residency is generously sponsored by atsec information security, in memory of Erika Evans.


Our blog is overflowing with beautiful stories, videos, and insights. We include one in every virtual concert program, but if you’d like to read more, or see the videos they mention click here.

Tonight we’d love to highlight our HOME blog series!
