Musiqa LOFT Concert at CAMH: “Mark Flood Gratest Hits”
Thursday, May 5, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Musiqa, two-time winner of the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, presents a free LOFT concert, Mark Flood: Gratest Hits featuring works for saxophones and showcasing members of the saxophone studio at the University of Houston, led by Musiqa regular and audience favorite Dan Gelok. On the program is Pitch Black, a work for quartet and ghetto-blaster, by noted Dutch “avant pop” composer Jacob TV and includes a soundtrack with “spoken word by jazz icons Billie Holiday and Chet Baker, death row inmates, and religious fanatics in Times Square.” The evening will conclude with the world premiere of Saxophone Quartet, by Musiqa composer-intern, Joel Love.
The LOFT concert, Mark Flood: Gratest Hits, is presented in collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston exhibition of the same name; the exhibition features a survey of collages, paintings and sculptures that “serve to critique exuberantly the perverse ethics of the art world.”
