The Da Camera Young Artists present a pop-up concert in the gallery in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s exhibition Two Centuries of American Still-Life Painting: The Frank and Michelle Hevrdejs Collection.

This exhibition covers an extraordinary range of artistic styles and subject matter from American artists over the last two centuries.  In contrast, American classical music has often been defined narrowly by a few 20th-century composers like George Gershwin and Aaron Copland. But what characterizes American classical music today? The Da Camera Young Artists explore this question as they present a pop-up concert featuring the music of living American composers Angélica Negrón, Jason Treuting, Houston-based Karim Al-Zand, and others.
