Kinetic, Houston’s own conductorless ensemble, continues its 2016/17 season with Sketches, a program that celebrates the string ensemble’s historic role as an experimental compositional medium.

Curated and led by Artistic Director Natalie Lin, the program will feature two early works by Felix Mendelssohn and Samuel Barber composed during their teen years, as well as the texturally eclectic Etude for Strings by twentieth-century Swiss composer Frank Martin. At the program’s center will be a world premiere of a new string orchestra work by American composer Alexandra T. Bryant, which will include student musicians from the Houston community as part of their educational project, Kinetic: Immersion.

Performance will take place in Duncan Recital Hall.
