APERIO, Music of the Americas and KINETIC team up for a joint season finale on Sunday May 5, 6 p.m. at Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston, featuring composer and singer Clarice Assad. Hailed by the New York Times as a “vibrant, gear-shifting, charismatic singer” and praised by Gramophone as “one of Brazil’s brightest young composers” Assad’s music making presents a unique blending of jazz, popular, and classical styles. The Latin Jazz Network lauds her as “quite simply a phenomenon... that appears just once in a lifetime.” “Flor de Lã” showcases Assad as the featured performer alongside musicians from Aperio and KINETIC in her alluring song cycle Elementos, for mixed chamber ensemble, followed by the Brazilian rhythms of Three Sketches for violin and two guitars, and Impressions for string orchestra. Her works are complemented on the program by the rarely-performed Concerto for Percussion and Strings by Camargo Guarnieri and Heitor Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras No. 9. “We’re thrilled to present this diverse and intensely collaborative program that equally reflects Aperio’s mission to showcase contemporary composers from the Americas and KINETIC’s mission to showcase diverse, under-represented, and newly composed classical music through flexible ensemble formats.” — Natalie Lin, artistic director of KINETIC. Tickets for “Flor de Lã” are available through the MATCH box office. [Organizer's description]
