Apollo Chamber Players present Ex Nihilo
Creation myths connect all cultures of the world, representing our shared humanity and creative inquisitiveness about the genesis of life. Music and art tell this uniquely human story more compellingly than any other medium. Apollo Chamber Players presents a concert exploring the Judeo-Christian, African, and Australian perspectives on this universal question.
The program features a newly commissioned work based on Australian aboriginal Dream-time poetry by Christopher Walczak, Professor of Composition at Southern Illinois University, and a premiere arrangement of Haydn’s Creation for chamber ensemble. Guest artists include members of Cantare Houston, Houston Chamber Choir, and Rice University faculty and alumni.
