Concerto Reimagined

3400 Main Street Houston, TX 77002

Houston’s artist-led; artist-curated conductorless ensemble Kinetic closes its 2021-2022 season with a concerto-filled program — but probably not the kind you have in mind!Featuring the world premiere of Concerto/5 by Anthony Brandt (professor at Rice University; Artistic Director of Musiqa) alongside the rarely-performed "Concerto for Strings" by Hollywood film composer Miklós Rózsa, this program defies the boundaries of the traditional concerto genre and celebrates the virtuosity of the string orchestra as a whole.Committed to amplifying diverse, under-represented, and newly composed classical music, Kinetic is an ensemble of 16 young professional string players bringing flexible chamber and orchestral ensemble performances to communities in and beyond Houston.Since forming in 2015, Kinetic has been gaining momentum as an innovative and dynamic force in the classical music scene, and an important advocate for the rarely-performed works in the classical repertoire. The ensemble has been described as "Houston's Indie, Conductorless Orchestra" that has "found its niche in Houston's music scene" (Houston Public Media), and has been praised for its "thoughtful incisive programming" and "visually arresting... brilliantly executed" performances (Arts+Culture TX).
