The Houston Chamber Choir kicks off their 2017-18 season with This American Voice: Reconstructing after Harvey, a concert utilizing the work of great American composers to hopefully bring a little comfort to Houstonians in the midst of recovery. The program promises Charles Ives; the music of Stephen Foster, composer of American standards like “My Old Kentucky Home” and “Oh! Susana”; Steve Reich’s 1972 composition “Clapping Music,” written for two performers to – you guessed it – clap; and “Fly Away I” by Caroline Shaw, a graduate of Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the youngest ever Pulitzer Prize-winner for music and frequent Kanye West collaborator. The Houston Chamber Choir is asking musicians to bring choral music donations to the concert for tenor Jason Watt, who - as choir director at Kingwood High School - lost his entire library during Harvey. 4 p.m. Sunday. South Main Baptist Church, 4100 Main. For information, call 713-224-5566 or visit houstonchamberchoir.org. $10 to $40.
