By bringing together leading American and international musicians, specifically selected for each program, Da Camera concerts offer a broad range of repertoire and musical styles while ensuring a product of outstanding musical excellence.

Da Camera of Houston, founded in 1987, was created in response to concerns about the dwindling audience for classical music in America with the intention to produce a series of thematically programmed concerts designed to attract new listeners to the concert hall. Members of the Houston Symphony and faculty of Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, University of Houston’s Moores School and others are often included in Da Camera programs, expanding the opportunities for locally based musicians of national acclaim and enriching the Houston community by enhancing the musical life of artists who choose to live here.

Under the artistic leadership of Sarah Rothenberg since 1994, Da Camera maintains its commitment to this high caliber of musicianship brought together to perform in its Houston-based subscription series at the Wortham Theater Center and The Menil Collection; its extensive education and outreach activities; and its regional, national and international touring initiatives.

Da Camera performs in Cullen Theater at the Wortham Theater Center and at The Menil Collection.
