Nathan Felix and His New Street Choir to Perform at CAM Kick-Off Party
Self-taught composer Nathan Felix and his new 30-piece choir collective, From Those Who Follow the Echoes (FTWFTE), to showcase new indie-choral music, as part of the kick-off party at Blue Star Contemporary Museum for Contemporary Art Month on Thursday March 2nd. CAM Kick-Off Party is from 6-9pm with the choral performance starting shortly after 6:30.
FTWFTE is a community-centered choir with a two-fold mission of bringing contemporary choral/classical music to San Antonio establishments such as museums, art exhibitions, gallery spaces and festivals as well as to serve new and underserved listeners through “pop up” performances in random spaces such as retirement homes, hotels, bridges, cemeteries and on the river to name a few. Music director, Nathan Felix, started FTWFTE, in 2016 in an effort to bolster community within the creative arts scene and spread a message of hope and unity through music in San Antonio.
Watch their performance at the Hotel Emma last November:
FTWFTE made it’s debut performances at Hotel Emma in November 2016 with a unique surprise “pop-up” concert in which the singers entered the Sternewirth room and dispersed throughout the mezzanine, the stairs and amongst the audience and sang new original works in Latin. After their 20 minute performance at Hotel Emma they jumped in a bus and did a repeat performance on the Hay Street Bridge at Luminaria. Be on the lookout for a unique presentation by the choir at Blue Star Contemporary as they intend to use movement around the walls along with the reverberation of the museum, to create a visually engaging performance.
