Music for Peace: ‘Peace in Many Languages’

Friday, March 11, 2011
Rothko Chapel
1409 Sul Ross St.
Houston, TX 77006
Admission: Free

Celebrating a very special occasion, FMM presents the 4th installment in the Music for Peace Series: Peace in Many Languages on Friday, March 11, 7:00 PM at Rothko Chapel. Joining Rothko Chapel’s 40th Anniversary events, FMM expands on this universal subject with a global musical view that includes works from Africa, Europe, the Americas and other regions of the world. Instrumental, vocal, saetas (flamenco ‘peaceful/religious’ music), and dance highlight this wonderful evening of music from around the world with works by composers such as Shostakovich, Lutoslawski, Lavista, Warwick, and others.  A special feature of the program will include songs from Houstonians that have found peace in adverse situations such as cancer, many in attendance that day.  To complement this theme, the twenty plus members multinational cast includes: Anne Leek (oboe); Gabriel Bata (percussion and vocals); Alison Greene (soprano); Cassandra White (soprano); Patricia Rabaza (mezzo-soprano); Paul Boyd (piano); Solero Flamenco: Irma La Paloma (cante) and Jeremías García (toque); Raúl Orlando Edwards (baritone/dancer); Jason Oby (founder/director) of Heritage of Zion Singers; Mary Carol Warwick (composer); Chris Howard (percussion); Marcia Sterling (violin); Julia Fox (soprano); and Dan Strba (viola). Admission is free.
