Cover to Cover

Cover to Cover is an Austin-based, modified wind quintet that formed in the Fall of 2022. Composed of current and former students at UT Austin’s Butler School of Music, the ensemble strives to present lesser-heard works and incorporate extra-musical elements into their performances. All passionate educators as well as performers, the members of Cover to Cover believe chamber music has an incredible power to engage and inspire new audiences.
