Houston Camerata presents Lest We Forget
The Lest We Forget concert commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The event will remember those who fought, served and died in that war, and also pay tribute to all war veterans.
Camerata conductor Paulo Gomes, baritone Richard Paul Fink, pianist Sheila Keyes and bassoonist Eric Stone Miller will present music by contemporary composers from eastern and western regions of the world. The repertoire features works composed by Egil Hovland, Ola Gjeilo, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Jake Runestad, Michael Remson, Craig Hella Johnson, and Moses Hogan. The pieces were chosen for their haunting beauty as well as their invitation to personally reflect and seek a deeper meaning.
