An update from Artistic and General Director Sarah Rothenberg

As our city begins to recover from Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts are with all of those affected by this devastating event. Da Camera is very fortunate. Our staff is safe and our offices here in the Menil Collection neighborhood were not damaged.

Our season will open as planned on Saturday, September 23 with From Harlem to Havana: Harlem Quartet with Aldo López-Gavilán, piano at Christ Church Cathedral, 1117 Texas Ave, and on Friday, October 6 with Robert Glasper Experiment at an alternate location to be announced as soon as possible. Ticket buyers are welcome to continue to purchase tickets for Robert Glasper through our online system, and will be assigned to comparable seats in the new venue.

Our October concerts at the Menil Collection will go forward as planned.

We are also thinking about how Da Camera can contribute to the city’s recovery, and again will let you know more as our plans progress.

Our season theme is NO PLACE LIKE HOME, which in this time of crisis takes on even greater meaning as we work together to rebuild our city.  Our community is coming together to provide those in need with shelter and basic necessities. However, with the emotional impact of what we have all lived through, we will need more to help us move forward, and this is where the power of music is immeasurable.
