While public performances are on hold,  Montopolis composer Justin Sherburn and cellist Sara Nelson are performing on Facebook Live, Tuesday nights at 8pm.  Please go to our contact page to make a song request or tip the band.  You can also enjoy our recordings and the photography featured in the live shows on our new YouTube page.  Hang in there.  We'll see you on the other side.      

Montopolis combines original music with film and live narration to produce critically acclaimed, audience-engaging performances.

"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."

"a multimedia love letter to the Texas coast, with voices and images from the Gulf set to an original score" 

NPR, Texas Standard

"The group can create forceful sounding songs that have a bit of rock ‘n roll snarl, but it is also capable of mournful classical sounding pieces ... the group’s range of expression is striking." 

The Houston Chronicle 

" A Prairie Home Companion with a Texas twist, this program from Indie classical group Montopolis tells the stories and myths of our rugged state."
