Armstrong Community Music School remains committed to serving Austin by providing excellent music education opportunities to all. ACMS has been fortunate as an organization to maneuver most classes and lessons to an online format during the shelter in place period. This includes free programming provided at several locations serving many of Austin’s most underserved populations as part of our Harmony Initiative. As a nonprofit organization ACMS always welcomes and seeks financial support to stay on track with the costs associated with keeping these commitments. Your unrestricted contribution ensures that ACMS will continue to provide these opportunities while offering stability for faculty and staff. 

The Massacre of Spring

Peter Stopschinski
Armstrong Community Music School (Westlake) (location map)
Saturday, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
07/18/20 (1 day)

Join composer Peter Stopschinski as he takes you through his re-imagining of Stravinsky’s The Rite Of Spring. Look at the crazy and innovative things Stravinsky put in his score, how the Rite became a template for Hollywood film scores, and how Peter took it apart and put it back together again over spring break creating his Massacre Of Spring. In the first half we will listen to various excerpts and different recordings and in second half Peter will play his arrangements live at the piano.
