MECA Houston

As the winter season starts back up after a few weeks of summer vacation, we are excited to welcome you to our 2019-20 series of chamber music! We love our work in the orchestra, but nothing thrills us more than working with each other, and sharing this fun and intimate work up close with you.

Here are the dates for the upcoming season of our concerts, Music in the Sky (MITS):

October 13, 2019 @ Live Oak Friends Meeting
November 24, 2019 @ Live Oak Friends Meeting

Signing up for tickets is easy. We open our RSVP on our website three weeks before each concert.

For the third season, we are excited to announce our charity concert, featuring works with piano. This year, we have chosen to collaborate with Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) in Houston. MECA is a community-based nonprofit organization committed to the healthy development of underserved youth and adults through arts and cultural programming, academic excellence, support services, and community building. The donations will go towards procuring string instruments and hiring a part-time cello teacher. To learn more about MECA, please visit meca-houston.org.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the concerts!

    Interplay - Musicians of the Houston Symphony

    Interplay - Musicians of the Houston Symphony - seeks to develop personal interaction between the residents of the Greater Houston area and the Houston Symphony Orchestra musicians in order to enrich the cultural and artistic experience for both.

    Since 2010 Interplay has presented the popular "Music in the Sky" series of chamber music concerts performed by Houston Symphony musicians and friends. The concert series is held at its home, The Live Oaks Friends Meeting in the Houston Heights. Until 2016 concerts were at the Chase Tower Sky Lobby in downtown Houston.

    In 2018 Interplay developed a new initiative - a yearly fund raising concert for another charity. The inaugural concert was titled "A Celebration of Women" and was held at the Steinway Selection Center in downtown Houston. It benefited Angela House. The 2018/19 MITS Charity Concert recipient was The YMCA Children's Academy at Wisdom High School.

    The 2019/20 MITS Charity Concert recipient will be Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) in Houston.

    Donations received by M.O.T.H.S. are used for projects that will have a lasting impact on music in our community. A small portion of donations go toward the expense of facilitating these concerts. M.O.T.H.S. is a qualified 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

    All of the musicians donate their time and professional services to organize and perform for these events.

    How does Music in the Sky work?

    "Music in the Sky", the popular concert series brought to you by the Musicians of the Houston Symphony is celebrating its third season at the Live Oaks Friends Meeting in the Houston Heights.

    The concerts, performed by members of the Houston Symphony with the James Turrell Meeting House installations as a centerpiece, create musical synergy with a visual ambiance. The audience is limited to the first 100 RSVPs, allowing the listeners to experience music making in an up-close, unique setting, as well as to interact with the performers. Together, audience and performers foster an enriching cultural and artistic adventure.

    There is a waitlist for those who RSVP after the first 100 people. Unclaimed seats will be released 5 minutes in advance of the concert. Those on the waitlist can then fill the unclaimed seats, first come, first served. You must RSVP and bring your waitlist ticket to the concert.

    Our programs include approximately an hour's worth of music, with ample time before, between, and after the performances for questions and audience interaction with the musicians. There is no entry fee, although a suggested donation of $15.00 to help support The Musicians of the Houston Symphony, Inc. projects will be accepted online or at the door.

    Please note that filling out the RSVP and donating to Interplay are two different things. Our web site is set up so that you can do both at once, or separately, for your convenience - however, a donation to Interplay is not a RSVP to a concert, and will not mean that your position on any waitlist will be improved. All monies raised through donation to Interplay are used for Houston Symphony projects that will have a lasting impact on live classical music in our community.
