Musiqa’s 2015-16 Season is off to an exciting start at the MATCH on Saturday, October 10. Musiqa’s Artistic Board will highlight its commitment to new works en force with Karim Al-Zand’s “Swimmy,” Anthony Brandt’s “Four Score,” Pierre Jalbert’s “Clarinet Trio” and Marcus Maroney’s “Chamaeleon II”. Musiqa will also present Anna Clyne’s “Rest these Hands” and the world premiere of Carl Schimmel’s “Roadshow for Thora”.
For this exciting concert Musiqa is proud to present the San Antonio based SOLI Chamber Ensemble, a critically-acclaimed group of musicians well-known for their virtuosity and dedication to contemporary music. SOLI has twice been recognized by Chamber Music America/ ASCAP for its Adventurous Programming.
Special Guest Narrator for the performance will be Houston actor, Seán Patrick Judge, who will narrate “Swimmy” – a children’s story by Leo Lionni, as well as a poem as part of the Anna Clyne piece, “Rest these Hands”. At age 25, Judge moved to Chicago, and then New York to work extensively on stage. Upon moving to Houston in 2004, Seán began working in small film projects and voice over work. Houston audiences may recognize him from his work with Catastrophic Theater, Main Street Theater, Mildred’s Umbrella among others.
