About Indie Orchestra Night
In 2008, Artistic Director Brent Baldwin started bouncing around the concept of a symphonic and choral collaboration with Shearwater bandleader Jonathan Meiburg. Several years later, Brent and fellow rock/classical crossover artist Nathan Felix developed the first ION Concert in 2015, which featured Shearwater, singer-songwriter Dana Falconberry, hip-hop artist Zeale and indie-rock outfit The Rocketboys. The second ION in 2016 featured Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star, R.E.M.), Quiet Company, the Riverboat Gamblers, Tinnarose, Carson McHone, Danny Malone and Phil Ajjarapu and was highlighted by the Austin American-Statesman as a concert “among March’s top arts picks,” in a city that hosts SXSW that same month. Last year’s ION included Big Bill, Calliope Musicals, Dustin Welch, Moving Panoramas, Star Parks and Nakia.
