Music from the Grove

HNAM opens its 2019 season, Journeys and Dreams at St Cyril of Alexandria 7 p.m. Thursday, February 28. HNAM continues its outreach as discounted advance purchase tickets online at artsmove.net are now available.  So come enjoy the first concert of our season “Music from the Grove” featuring HNAM founder/pianist Adam Vincent Clay, Shakuhachi player Shawn Renzoh Head, and harpist Susanna Campbell.  

This unique  program highlights traditional Japanese works, and original works by Houston composers Hsin-Jung Tsai, Shawn Head, and Adam Vincent Clay, as well as a commissioned work by Bo Li, among other composers influenced by Japanese style (including Takashi Yoshimatsu).

Join us for an exploration of an ancient culture that presents a different perspective on the world through its music.  As we begin our journey from the East, we invite you to enter the reflective, passionate, and colorful worlds these composers inhabit in their music, and share the traditional sound of the Shakuhachi (traditional Japanese flute), and how that sound has transformed in the western classical instruments of the piano and harp. 

True to HNAM’s integrative tradition relevant artwork will be on display enhancing the  experience and concert goers are able to visit at the post concert reception with artist, musicians and composers.  Student tickets are available at a discount and for those unable to afford tickets, a limited number of donated passes are available upon advance request to info@artsmove.net.  Houston, be sure to put this HNAM experience on your calendar as we honor Music from the Grove!

Join musicians, Adam Vincent Clay (pianist, and founder), Rachel McCarthy Clay (pianist), violinists Laura Cividino and Luis Ramirez as we bring to life Dvorak’s great Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81. “Dvorak’s Piano Quintet is full of Czech dances rhythms, sweeping romantic gestures, gorgeous melodies, passages of virtuosity, motoric, rhythmic drive… basically everything you could ask for in a large chamber work.” says founder, Adam Vincent Clay.  Soak in the beautiful and intense sounds of William Bolcom’s ragtime music for piano. Savor the intricacies of music by Ravel, once called the “Swiss watchmaker” by Stravinsky.
