"The city snapped back into focus. The musicians came to life. They unleashed a dizzying, immediately danceable beat, half techno and half klezmer as they rocked to and fro." The New Haven Independent

Akropolis On the Move...

Two weeks, nine states, nine events, and counting. Our travels continue to take us to some of the most fascinating places and enthusiastic audiences around the country. View photos from the tour here

Our adventures began with a return trip to infamous San Jose, California. For avid Akropolis followers, it was in San Jose this past April where Matt tripped on a cable car rail in the street and broke his jaw (yikes!). You’ll be happy to know there were no casualties on our second visit, only exuberant attendees for a concert program filled with audience participation, electronics, and bird calls courtesy of works by John Steinmetz and Jacob TV.

Recent Rave Reviews



"Ryan Reynolds was clearing the dance floor and checking the strobe lights, disco ball, mixers. He paused, wetting his lips. With one last, wide-eyed look around the room, he began to lay down the beat, a low, certain melting of notes that got the crowd’s adrenaline pumping."

New Haven Independent
 

"The concert was a resounding success. The artist comments preceding each selection were informative and fun. I received many positive comments from audience members of all ages about how they had enjoyed it, including the audience participation. There were three curtain calls and a standing ovation leading to a wonderful encore. The artists were a delight to visit with at the reception following the performance, and I came away with a couple of CDs to continue my enjoyment of this chamber group instrumentation."

Showcase Fever
 



One of the absolute highlights of our recent tour was being selected as a juried showcase participant at the Performing Arts Exchange South Arts conference in Baltimore, Maryland. Not only did we get to showcase alongside some of the country's most amazing artists, like American Idol finalist Melinda Doolittle, but we also got to spend some well-deserved time with our manager, Oni Buchanan of Ariel Artists, while we met presenters from around the country.

The showcase fever continues! Akropolis was selected to showcase as part of the Young Performers Career Advancement Program with APAP and Chamber Music America this coming January. Stay tuned for more of our musical adventures!
