Starlight Tea Presents: Apollo Chamber Players
Saturday, March 19, 2016
On Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm, the Starlight Tea concert series will host the return of the Texas‐based string quartet know as Apollo Chamber Players! They were so well received here in their 2013 concert that we have offered them a return engagement. We were so pleased that they responded positively!
Apollo Chamber Players’ musical approach has been described as “virtuosic, genuine and passionate” and its folk arrangements “tour‐de‐force compositions” (CultureMap Houston) brought to life “through vibrant performances of original arrangements” (Arts & Culture Texas). Through the organization’s mission to explore the rich intersection of classical and folk/ethnic music, it has gained prestige through innovative, thematically‐programmed concerts and culturally‐enriching educational activities. The groups 2013 East Coast Tour featured a highly acclaimed debut concert at Carnegie Hall (Weill Recital Hall).
Winner of HoustonPress’ 2014 MasterMinds award, Apollo was one of three organizations in Houston to be recognized for positively impacting the local arts community. Don’t miss this stunning musical event! As with all Starlight Tea concerts, attendance is free, with a free‐will offering taken.
