Tetractys is a new music concert series that serves the cultural needs of Austin by contributing to the cultivation of a thriving new music scene. We believe in the importance of music written by living composers and in creating opportunities for the Austin public to experience these compositions through exciting performances, educational outreach, and commissioning new works. At the heart of our organization is the belief that the contemporary composer offers insight and reflection into our common human experience. We endeavor to be the conduit through which the contemporary composer and contemporary audiences connect.
Tetractys performs several concerts each season that feature a newly commissioned work alongside works of other living composers. In addition, Tetractys also curates a series of Composer Portraits; concerts featuring multiple works by one composer. To view upcoming events, please view our Events page.
Since Tetractys’ inception in 2015, we have had the great privilege of commissioning 10 new works by Austin-based composers.
