In addition to its subscription series at Zilkha Hall and outreach activities, Ars Lyrica provides performances throughout the Houston community. An ongoing partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts has resulted in a number of programs and lectures at MFAH facilities (including Bayou Bend, Rienzi, and MFAH main galleries) that complement visual art exhibitions. Through joint events and cross-promotion with partners including Houston Early Music Festival, M.E.C.A., Theater District Open House, Foreign Consulates, Houston Symphony Little Day of Music, and Heights Kids’ Day of Music, Ars Lyrica continues to reach out to new and diverse audiences and make a significant impact on the community.

Please keep it up and give us more Rienzi experiences. Compliments to all the performers.” — Ann Thompson, Opera lecturer
