Houston Chamber Choir presents Mass Observation
The Houston Chamber Choir presents the Southwest premiere of noted British composer Tarik O’Regan’s Mass Observation. The Choir will be joined by Musiqa in a unique collaboration.
This startling original work is scored for choir and six percussionists and is a poignant meditation on the histories of our varied, ambivalent relationships with surveillance in its many guises. The work takes its title from the British social research organization, Mass-Observation, which aimed to record everyday life in the United Kingdom.
Rounding out the program will be music by noted Houston composers: Karim Al-Zand, Marcus Karl Maroney, and Augusta Read Thomas.
