Toward Paradise Falling (The Devil)

Did I actually reach out my arms toward it, toward paradise falling, like the fading of the dearest, wildest hope—the dark heart of the story that is all the reason for its telling? –Mary Oliver, The Chance to Love Everything

Musicians: Ryan Heller, baritone; Carla McElhaney, piano | Poetry will be read by the musicians.


If you are a mother, or if you have a mother, come celebrate with us this Mother's Day!! We have lots of surprises in store for you, including ticket giveaways, the chance to have Ryan dedicate a song and sing it to the person of your choice, and the opportunity to sample the finest in gourmet food truck offerings from Chef Aaron Esserman's acclaimed AUSTIN TASTE US! Plus, Classical 89.5 KMFA will be in the house for BRUNCH WITH KMFA, which includes a special post-show chat with the artists moderated by a celebrity host. Come early and stay late -- doors open promptly at 12:00!

Theme: The Devil. Ryan Heller and Carla McElhaney offer an exciting and thought-provoking look at The Devil card for a Mother's Day extravaganza unlike any other. The Devil card signifies the darkest place of the hero’s journey, representing the ignorance, fear, and hopelessness lodged within each one of us. Will the hero make it out alive? Join us on May 14 and find out!
