Raffle Tickets: $20


A balance of intimate performances and interviews from Austin musicians, and guided interpretation from Curator Katie Edwards, UAD: Studio Sessions merges the visual and aural arts to provide new perspectives on Charles Umlauf and his role in Austin's arts community, both in the past and present. 

In featuring live music from a diverse group of genres and talent, as well as rarely seen work explored by our UMLAUF staff, we hope to invite our patrons to better imagine ourselves as part of a space, and to connect to creativity even during times of closure or isolation.

September's UAD: Studio Sessions ft. American Dreamer will give viewers the opportunity to enjoy Charles Umlauf's studio and work space while exploring the intersections of art and sound in spaces currently not accessible to the public with UMLAUF Curator Katie Edwards!

Book in-person tickets today for the chance to catch the show live (and safely distanced) and to enjoy private access and drinks in the Garden an hour before the show (6pm-7pm)

American Dreamer is four gifted musicians who bring a heavy dose of  strings to their unique blend of Indie-Folk. Each member – Courtney  Castaneda, Dana Marie, Camille Schiess, and Sasha Klare-Ayvazian –  contributes something distinctive to their rich and remarkable sound.  The quartet’s music builds on relatable Folk songs, transformed through  bold string arrangements (violin, cello, bass) and resplendent three-part harmony.

American Dreamer’s four members met while pursuing graduate degrees  at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas, Austin. They  share a lifelong passion for crafting their art and using it to connect  with urban and rural communities. American Dreamer strives to honor  America’s deeply rooted Folk tradition while exploring contemporary elements that roll the genre forward.

American Dreamer has toured nationally and performed widely across Texas. In addition to frequent performances at festivals and noted Austin venues, the group appears regularly at schools, shelters, hospitals, and in rural communities.
