Proceeds from this performance will be donated to Citizens’ Environmental Coalition and the Matagorda Bay Foundation.

The Living Coast is a gorgeous nature film, dynamic storytelling and live music performance that explores the Texas gulf coast. Montopolis features members of the Austin Symphony Orchestra and Texas’ best rock musicians touring with renowned storyteller Margaret Hoarde. The show is a love letter to the region as well as an opportunity to discuss broader environmental challenges. Surfers and sailors, shrimpers and oilmen, poets and scientists all share their stories about this complicated region of serene beauty, vast industry, and incredible contradictions.  

“A Montopolis show is like a night of beautiful chamber music, but with electric guitar and the twang of pedal steel giving a Texas kick to the keys and strings.”
