Help Houston Early Music “Go Green”
You can help conserve our environment and lower costs for Houston Early Music. Mailing postcard reminders to patrons prior to each concert uses up paper and costs us money. Many patrons rely on our website and email newsletter for concert information. If you are on our print (postal) mailing list and would like us to remove your name, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to help bring the joy of early music to Houston, and to get to know the folks behind the scenes, please call or email us. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to find ways you can get involved. It takes more than excellent musicians to make the music: it won’t happen without the invaluable effort of ushers, envelope stuffers, concert assistants, ticket takers, reception hosts … and many more people just like you. If you love the music and have some time to give, please let us know. Just email us at info@HoustonEarlyMusic.org

John Moran, Rebel
Observing its 40th anniversary season this year, Houston Early Music opens its season with a return visit by the acclaimed New York City-based baroque ensemble, Rebel (pronounced Re-BEL). The program L’estro Armonico: Diverse Trumpet and Violin Concerti features works by Telemann, Valentini, Ragazzi, Stradella and Vivaldi. The eleven member ensemble includes four violins, two violas, cello, bass, theorbo, harpsichord and baroque trumpet. The performance is 8:00 pm, Friday, October 19, 2007 at St. Philip Presbyterian Church, 4807 San Filipe.
Hailed by the New York Times as “sophisticated and beguiling” and praised by the Los Angeles Times for their “astonishingly vital music-making,” Rebel has earned an impressive international reputation, enchanting diverse audiences by their unique style and their virtuosic, highly expressive and provocative approach to the Baroque and Classical repertoire.
Ars Lyrica’s 07–08 New Year’s Eve program is devoted to
“Clandestine Classics”: little-known masterworks by Bach and Handel, including the latter’s recently rediscovered “Gloria.” Join the musicians for a gala champagne reception and silent auction in the Hobby Center Founders’ Club.
