As previously mentioned on Show 7, commissioned by Houston Grand Opera in celebration of the Ship Channel’s centennial, an original song cycle offers compelling insights into the people at the heart of one of Houston’s most vibrant centers of industry, will be presented on December 10th. Each performance will be preceded by a brief conversation with a member of the Ship Channel community.
It will be held at the Tudor Gallery, Julia Ideson Library, 550 McKinney Street in downtown Houston at 5:30 PM.
The second event is being held on December 11, 6:00 PM reception, 7:00 PM promenade, on Buffalo Bayou at the Sabine Promenade.
Join the Mitchell Center, in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership for a free interactive holiday event, Unsilent Night. New York composer, Phil Kline, created this 43 minute piece, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music that can easily be downloaded on your smart phone – you will be downloading the app once you arrive. When participants play their different “parts” simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece.
