HOUSTON, TX – June 5, 2013 – Houston Early Music, a leading presenter of the world’s finest period ensembles and soloists, announces its 2013-2014 Concert Season with five stellar ensembles.
Houston Early Music continues its commitment to its Emerging Artists Series and Hispanic Heritage Series this season. Each performance features a discussion program with ensemble members prior, as part of Houston Early Music’s educational outreach initiative.
Nancy Ellis, artistic director, said that the new season continues the group’s mission of bringing world-renowned early music performances to the Bayou City.
“By illuminating and showcasing the centuries of rarely heard music from the Middle Ages through the 18th century, we provide a unique musical perspective for modern Houston audiences,” Ellis said. “The sounds may be of ancient origins, but their ability to inspire and transport audiences remains powerful and timeless.”
