  • A preview of the entire season ahead

    Here's a quick overview of all that you can expect in this musical passport.

  • Handel's Jephtha

    Handel’s final masterpiece sets an Old Testament tale about a warrior’s foolish promise to God and its terrible consequences. The austere subject matter (from the Book of Judges) becomes pure gold in Handel’s hands; his oratorio is full of beautiful melodies, searing choruses, even a surprise ending.

    Ars Lyrica Houston, Hobby Center, Zilkha Hall

  • A window into the russian soul

    The brilliant young Russian conductor Elena Sharkova takes us into the depths of the mysterious Russian soul in a moving concert featuring works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and the Houston Premiere of Chimes by Valery Gavrilin.

    Saturday, Nov 12, 7:30 pm

    Houston Chamber Choir, Saint Philip Presbyterian Church

  • brass quintet -

    crossing over the English channel

    The ROCO Brass Quintet is distinct from other professional groups in Houston in that it champions modern classical music, while also performing music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, as well as jazz music by American composers such as Duke Ellington. The ensemble offers a unique concert experience while upholding the familiar ROCO characteristics of virtuosic performance and approachability.

    Friday, January 27, 6 pm


  • Brentano String Quartet -

    Art of the Fugue

    The Brentano Quartet presents a cornerstone of classical music in a new way, elucidating and visualizing the fugue with a performance installation created by engineer Gabriel Calatrava.

    Friday, March 3, 8:00 pm

    Da Camera, Cullen Theater, Wortham Center

  • Schubert, Death and the Maiden

    The String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, by Franz Schubert, is one of the pillars of the chamber music repertoire and will be the heart of this concert.
