This Clarinet-Driven Concert Is a Far Cry from Your High School Band Days

Ever wondered what it would be like to experience the upper echelon of live music in the 1700s? Musica Tra Amici focuses on providing intimate chamber music performances in a relaxed environment – very much like the dining party environments for which most chamber music of the 18th and 19th century was written. Check out their latest live event, Clarinet Quintets by Mozart and Brahms, on Sunday, December 2nd at 7:00 p.m.

This particular performance will present clarinet quintets by Mozart and Brahms. Instead of utilizing programs, the music being performed will be announced from the stage where the performing artists will also share with the audience interesting aspects about the compositions, composers, and the era in which the works were written.

For its performances, Musica Tra Amici is very proud to feature some of Houston's very own world-class artists. To perform these very special quintets, Musica Tra Amici Founder, Eric Halen, will be joined by some of his Houston Symphony colleagues: Mark Nuccio, Principal Clarinetist, Houston Symphony Eric Halen, Co-Concertmaster, Houston Symphony MuChen Hsieh, Principal Second Violin, Houston Symphony Joan DerHovsepian, Associate Principal Violist, Houston Symphony Chris French, Associate Principal Cellist, Houston Symphony.

Tickets for this event start at 27 dollars for seniors and students. Regular admission is 37 dollars for adults.

As always, following the performance, there will be a reception with a light buffet and complimentary wine where patrons can meet the performing artists and mingle with the other patrons.

At The Villages of Lake Jackson Apartments in Lake Jackson, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
