As we move toward the twenty-first century, we feel it is important to gather and treasure the best of a rich cultural legacy from the past. We invite you to begin your millennial journey with an evening with Vienna’s fabulous four—Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert—in a concert celebrating the legacy of one of Houston’s great patrons of the arts, Eleanor McCollum. Your journey continues with the luminous harmonies of Josquin in an evening that promises to be esthetically and spiritually moving. We celebrate Christmas in English Renaissance style and then tour the Alhambra in word and song. Next, we pause to celebrate the 250th Bach anniversary year in a series of concerts titled "Bach at the Millennium—Seasons of a Man’s Life"

Join some of the world’s most inspired musicians who recreate music by the masters in a journey of discovery.
