Houston New Arts Movement presents Music from the Grove
Houston New Arts Movement opens its 2019 season, Journeys and Dreams, featuring HNAM founder/pianist Adam Vincent Clay, Shakuhachi player Shawn Renzoh Head, and harpist Susanna Campbell.
This unique program highlights traditional Japanese works, and original works by Houston composers Hsin-Jung Tsai, Shawn Head, and Adam Vincent Clay, as well as a commissioned work by Bo Li, among other composers influenced by Japanese style (including Takashi Yoshimatsu).
This event will be an exploration of an ancient culture that presents a different perspective on the world through its music. As they begin the journey from the East, they will invite the audience to enter the reflective, passionate, and colorful worlds these composers inhabit in their music, and share the traditional sound of the Shakuhachi (traditional Japanese flute), and how that sound has transformed in the western classical instruments of the piano and harp.
