Based in Austin, the chamber music group Revel is redefining classical music for the masses. Informal performances in non-traditional venues are their specialty, all delivered without the pomp or pretension that scare so many of us away from classical music. Instead of sitting quietly and listening, Revel wants the audience to interact with the performance; to talk with the musicians and ask questions about the piece.
