Musiqa presents: The Extravagant Vein
In conjunction with artist Donald Moffett’s current show at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston “The Extravagant Vein,” Musiqa presents a program that includes several politically charged works, including composer Cornelius Cardew’s “The Workers Song” for solo violin and Frederic Rzewski’s “No More War” a round for any number of voices.
Composer John Fitz Rogers’ “The Evidence” for monologist and prerecorded sounds utilizes text taken from the now infamous 1950 “red scare” hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives. Compositions by Pierre Max DuBois, Christian Lauba and Ryo Noda for solo saxophone and violin and saxophone round out the provocative program.
We'd love to see you there.

Dan Gelok, alto saxophone
Yung-Hsiang Wang, violin
