Hear the Art! A Preview Concert by Cantare Houston

Thursday, Jun. 21, 2018 – Thursday, Jun. 21, 2018

06:30 PM – 06:50 PM


When Cantare Houston was founded, some of the first programs were walking concerts in the MFAH galleries. These events featured music of the period or culture represented in the art, along with brief art-historical commentary to underscore the connections between the music and the works of art.

Experience the return of this popular event! Under the artistic direction of Amy Solberg, Cantare Houston singers present free, 20-minute performances on June 7 & 21 to preview the walking concerts on June 12 & 26.

  • The June 7 previews offer excerpts from the June 12 walking concert that highlights the arts of Africa, the Americas, Asia, and the Islamic worlds. Meet in the Beck Building lobby.
  • The June 21 previews offer excerpts from the June 26 walking concert that highlights Western art. Meet in the Beck Building lobby.
