24th Annual TransCanada Theater District Open House

  • Zilkha Hall at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts 800 Bagby Street Houston, TX, 77002 United States (map)

Ars Lyrica Houston will perform during the 24th Annual TransCanada Theater District Open House!

We invite you to experience a special excerpt from our Bilingual Educational Outreach Program, "Songs from the Heart"

The performance will take place on Zilkha Hall Stage - The Hobby Center For The Performing Arts, from 3:20-3:35 pm. 

"Songs from the Heart" is an interactive, bilingual program that introduces audiences to early vocal literature and period instruments with an emphasis on Spanish & Latin American cultures.   This program, curated by mezzo-soprano Cecilia Duarte, percussionist Jesús Pacheco and gambist Pedro Funes, features impassioned solo vocal works accompanied by percussion instruments and the historical viola da gamba.   "Songs from the Heart" connects students to the musical heritage of earlier Spanish & Latin American cultures while examining the different roles in a classical music ensemble.
