Event: Texas Community Music Festival, April 17-26, 2015

TCMFX 2015

The tenth annual Texas Community Music Festival (TCMF) will be held April 17-26, 2015, at Central Market North in Austin, and will feature Texas’s most diverse lineup of musical performers presented this year. Ranging in size from single performers to ensembles of 70 pieces or more, and running the musical gamut from classical to rock to jazz to world beat and everything in between, TCMF X truly has something for everybody’s musical taste.

Since 2006, tens of thousands of music lovers have enjoyed the spectacular Austin spring weather and music and dance at TCMF. The 2015 festival, again, will be held entirely at Central Market North, thanks to the generosity and long-term commitment of HEB and Central Market. All performances are family-friendly and free admission.

The 2015 TCMF promises to continue the tradition, as performances will be staged over 10 consecutive days and nights at Central Market North. A number of musical ensembles have participated in each and every TCMF since the beginning; many joined the “family” in the second year of the festival. Additionally, as has become traditional, many ensembles, bands and performers will make their TCMF debut in 2015.

The festival is hosted by the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble, Austin’s oldest community band and is sponsored through the generosity of H-E-B and, for the tenth consecutive year, Central Market North. Additional sponsorship has been provided by a number of local merchants and individuals who have donated to help keep TCMF FREE for ALL!
