Bio

The Barton Hills Choir is led by Barton Hills Elementary School music teacher and choir director Gavin Tabone. The Choir is comprised of 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students from the school and accompanied by professional musicians, including guitarist Don "El Cento" Cento, bassist Jason "Mr. Boom Boom" Brint, and drummer Jake "Mr. Bubbles" Perlman.

Their repertoire spans golden oldies from the Beatles, Elvis, David Bowie, Grateful Dead and Beach Boys and numbers from Broadway musicals like "Mary Poppins" to songs from more current bands like Wilco, Muse, The Flaming Lips, Foo Fighters, and Belle and Sebastian.

They were joined by special guest Stuart Murdoch of Belle and Sebastian for their shows at the 2014 ACL Festival to perform his songs, and honored to share the stage with Belle and Sebastian for several songs during their show. In 2016 local singing sensation Nakia performed with the choir on the Austin Kiddie Limits stage. They also accompanied Pink Floyd's Roger Waters in 2012 when he performed 'The Wall' at the Frank Erwin Center, and were proud to share the stage with Charlie Sexton in 2016 for a David Bowie tribute concert at the Scottish Rite theatre.

The Barton Hills Choir plays gigs at Texas venues and events like South by Southwest.
