Houston Grand Opera HGOco presents On This Muddy Water: Voices from the Houston Ship Channel
HGOco presents the world premiere of On This Muddy Water: Voices from the Houston Ship Channel by D. J. Sparr and Janine Joseph — a 30-minute song cycle for voices and chamber ensemble commissioned to celebrate the Ship Channel's centennial. Sparr and Joseph combed through hours of oral histories collected by the Houston Arts Alliance to create this portrait of the men and women at the heart of one of Houston's most vibrant centers of industry.
Join for a free reception following the world premiere performance on Dec. 10. Each performance will be preceded by a brief conversation with a member of the Ship Channel community.
