Our next 2018-19 Music in the Sky concert is December 2nd!
Our second program is curated by Houston Symphony Violinist Annie Chen and Houston Symphony Violist Sheldon Person. It features the sixth movement of Oliver Messiaen's twelve movement work Des Canyons aux Étoiles, written to celebrate the bicentenary of the Declaration of Independence and originally commissioned by Alice Tully. Messiaen visited Bryce Canyon UT while working on Étoiles, and his sound-colour synaesthesia defined tonal language combined with our beautiful performance space is going to be an unforgettable experience. Also on the program is Borodin's 2nd String Quartet, with its famous Notturno movement and one of the most hauntingly beautiful melodies ever written.
Building on last year’s successful concert of chamber music with piano which raised funds to donate to Angela House, we will dedicate our April concert as a fundraiser for yet another local cause, to be disclosed soon.
The December 2nd and February 10th Music in the Sky concerts will be held at our home, the Live Oak Friends Meeting at 1318 W 26 Street, while the final April 28 piano fundraiser will take place at the Steinway Selection Center, 401 Louisiana Street.
