The Barton Hills Choir is featured in a recent episode of Arts in Context, a documentary series produced by Austin PBS affiliate KLRU that explores the process of creation through collaboration and the condition of living and working as an artist.

The documentary about the choir, entitled Let All The Children Boogie, was produced by Mario Troncoso and Juan A. Izaguirre, with Sara Robertson as Executive Producer. It offers fascinating insight into the choir and their director, Gavin Tabone, with interviews of current and former choir members along with video footage and pictures from some of their most memorable shows.

The episode is the fourth in the 8th season of Arts in Context. Let All The Children Boogie originally aired on KLRU October 26, 2017, but if you missed it you can watch the entire episode online now:
