Matt Hinsley says: “Anton is truly stunning. Speed and clarity effortlessly flow out of his instrument like it’s an extension of his consciousness. This will be unforgettable.”

Make a night of it! Chez Zee is just minutes from the concert, and the chefs are making a special meal just for us for our last ACG dinner of the year!

Dinner reservations are online here, or call 512-300-2247.

The delectable fall menu includes Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Black Cherry Sauce, Stuffed Bell Peppers with Rice, Kale and Garbanzo Beans, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms, and Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting!

At dinner, ACG Composer in Residence Joseph V. Williams II will tell us a bit about the enormous new work he’s creating for us: more than an hour of original film music for four guitars and cello, to be performed in January with Alfred Hitchcock’s early silent masterpiece The Lodger. Williams has adapted a scene from the movie for guitar ensemble, and Austin Classical Guitar Youth Orchestra will premiere it on Saturday right before Baranov takes the stage!

Our dinner is generously sponsored by Laraine and Leon Lasdon.
