ACTS OF CONGRESS

for symphonic winds & percussion

| HARD |

    Congress avenue shoots north up from the feet of Austin Texas. It then crosses over Lady Bird Lake splitting downtown in half before coming to a rest in the lap of the Texas State Capital Building. The stretch of avenue south of the lake known as South Congress is lined with shops, taco bars, hotels, tattoo parlors, live-music venues, and restaurants. It is in a sense a main artery of the city and serves as a cultural nerve center for all things Austin. In the 17 years that my family and I have lived here this street has become a favorite jaunt of ours. And though this place has grown and evolved rapidly over the years the charm, soul, and uniqueness found in its roots still hold true... for the time being anyway. 


    It is in the occurrences, locations, graffiti, and wall art located along South Congress that this suite finds its inspiration.
