Upcoming Shows

Mercury Chamber Orchestra: Bach's Coffee Cantata

Thursday, February 9, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.

As prolific as he was, Bach never wrote an opera. In fact, the only genre of his day to which he contributed nothing. That's why his Coffee Cantata is a treat— it's as close as we get to hearing what an opera by Bach might be like. Afterwards, enjoy a selection from his famous Orchestral Suites— all on instruments that recreate the kinds of sounds Bach worked with.

 

Riyaaz Qawwali

Saturday, February 11, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.

Riyaaz Qawwali, an South Asian American music ensemble, will feature female musicians for the first time. Together, they will perform the poetry of female poets, which have never before been sung in this genre. It will feature poems from Amrita Pritam, Parveen Shakir, and Mirabai. The Female Perspective in Qawwali is a long-term project by Riyaaz Qawwali. It was kicked off by the commissioning of 'Qawwwali-e-Nau' by Asia Society Texas Center in November 2022. This concert, the second in the series, is supported in part by an award to Sonny K. Mehta, Riyaaz Qawwali's artistic director, from the Mid America Arts Alliance.
