Cultural Arts Performances:

Mercury: An Orchestra Redefined (Antoine Plante- Artistic Director)

Death and the Maiden

Friday, April 7: Death & the Maiden

Purchase Tickets

Mercury was started by four friends in the year 2000 as an intimate chamber ensemble with the goal to enrich and entertain Houston audiences with an exciting repertoire of music performed on period instruments. What began as a grassroots effort over lunch at a local restaurant has blossomed into a lively chamber orchestra beloved by the community. In 2013, Mercury rebranded and expanded its repertoire to include works outside of the Baroque period.  In this evolution, the goal remains the same—bringing music to life and to people across Houston and beyond. Mercury continues to receive critical and audience acclaim for innovative and welcoming performances, while also impacting the lives of young Houstonians through award-winning music education programs.
