With a comfortable and welcoming spirit, Open Classical produces highly entertaining music events that combine classical artistry with just enough comedic antics for the enjoyment by audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Our signature Classical Open Mic event was produced weekly in San Antonio at Olmos Pharmacy from July 2015 - March 2016. While currently on hiatus, we look forward to returning to San Antonio in the near future.
Open Classical began running a weekly open mic for classical musicians in Dallas, TX in 2011. Building on the premise of building a ground-up community of classical music performers and supporters, the organization expanded to produce professional chamber music concerts and stage shows using many of the same performers that connected with the public audience at the open mics.
Open Classical is dedicated to providing innovative ways for the public to experience the art form we love, and to providing increased opportunities for musicians from amateurs to professionals.
With a lifetime commitment to classical music combined with an entrepreneurial drive, Mark has brought a dream to life with Open Classical. His vision is to provide an opportunity for musicians to hone their skills while simultaneously creating a new experience for fans and performers. His creativity, leadership and love for story-telling is central to the spirit of the organization.
