Experience "All This Joy" October 16
"All This Joy" is an homage to the little experiences that make us human, and the ways in which being part of a community enhances them. The program is a fun, upbeat mix of pop, video game & movie music, spirituals, and more, accompanied by Benjamin Dia (piano), Jill Csekitz (drums), Brittany Koep (bass), Trevor Shaw (guitar), Adrienne Inglis (panpipes), and Patrick Medina (sax).
Central Machine Works Brewery & Beer Hall at 4824 E Cesar Chavez St in East Austin, TX will host "All This Joy" in their cavernous, mid-century modern space, known for its live music offerings, small art gallery, and exceptional food and drink.

Panoramic Voices' 25th Anniversary Season
"This year is about re-engaging our members, building our community, and promoting the team-sport of choir within and outside of our organization," said Juli Orlandini, Panoramic Voices' Interim Executive Director and Conductor for the 2022–2023 Artistic Season. "We're looking forward to meaningful collaborations, fun venues, and innovative musical performances."
Panoramic Voices will be collaborating with Maestro Stefan Sanders and the Central Texas Philharmonic on their "Home for the Holidays" program in Georgetown, TX on December 18. Additionally, Panoramic Voices will present a holiday program titled "FAs & LAs" at the Austin Scottish Rite Theater in downtown Austin on Friday, December 16, complete with an audience singalong.

To close the season, there will be a Spring Gala and Concert to celebrate Panoramic Voices' past, present, and future as an Austin institution designed around the importance of belonging as we continue our mission to create music without borders in an inclusive and diverse community.
