Houston’s boldest chamber ensemble partners with local and national guests for an innovative, multidisciplinary program celebrating our city’s multicultural diversity. LATIN BEATS explores the breathtaking music of Brazil, Cuba, Venezuela and the Andes through new music, dance and fine art. Guests include dancers from Houston Ballet and Houston Contemporary Dance Company, Venezuelan virtuoso violinist Eddy Marcano and pianist Baden Goyo, and Spanish-born percussionist Jesús Pacheco. Music by Leo Brouwer, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Javier Farias, Aldemaro Romero, Arthur Gottschalk and more!
A newly commissioned canvas by Brazilian-born artist Tony Paraná provides a stunning backdrop to this multicultural program.
“Apollo’s blend of old and new music is out of this world.” —TEXAS STANDARD
Houston TX based Apollo Chamber Players “performs with rhythmic flair and virtuosity” (The Strad) and has “found fruitful territory” (Houston Chronicle) through innovative, globally- inspired programming and multicultural new music commissions. Recent winner of Chamber Music America’s prestigious Residency Partnership award, the quartet has performed for sold-out audiences at Carnegie Hall twice in the past five years, and it holds the distinction of being the first American chamber ensemble to record and perform in Cuba since the embargo relaxation. Apollo is featured frequently on American Public Media’s nationally-syndicated program Performance Today.
