Musiqa, Houston's eclectic classical music ensemble, continues its mission to bring Bach and Beethoven to the forefront of the city's cultural landscape by joining forces with the ubiquitous Travesty Dance Company for Time Will Tell. The world premiere dance choreographed by local talent Karen Stokes, who's founder of the Center for Choreography at the University of Houston, will be performed to music by Musiqa composer Rob Smith, who's also director of the AURA Contemporary Ensemble. TDC will pair its contemporary style with classical music for a unique juxtaposition of dance's free-form present and music's baroque past. This ambitious, rare pairing of contemporary dance and classical music will be under the baton of acclaimed Houston Symphony Conducting Fellow Brett Mitchell. 7:30 p.m. Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Zilkha Hall, 800 Bagby.
