The Rothko Chapel is using the power of music to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace -- and to take a stand against recent events demonstrating hate.
The Chapel is hosting a concert featuring Apollo Chamber Players, the award-winning Houston-based string quartet, for a performance at 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, followed by a reception at the Rothko Chapel, located at 3900 Yupon.
The concert will feature music inspired by peace, reconciliation and human rights, including both older and newly commissioned works by world-renowned composers Alexandra du Bois, Libby Larsen, Malek Jandali, Philip Glass.
Apollo Chamber Players is a nonprofit chamber music organization explores the folkloric and cultural influences found in classical music -- and challenges traditional notions of chamber music presentation and audience engagement.
