Artist-Led; Artist Curated

Now in its fifth concert season, Houston-based KINETIC is gaining increasing recognition for its dynamic, collaboratively driven performances and masterfully curated musical programs. An artist-led ensemble of young professional string players founded in 2015, KINETIC is committed to showcasing diverse, under represented, and newly composed classical music through flexible chamber and orchestral ensemble formats. Its 2019-2020 season brings collaborations with Musiqa, NobleMotion Dance, Archway Gallery, Flatland Gallery Hoppa Project, Sam Houston State University, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft—and more.

“One of the best performances I have ever seen."

— Houston Matters / Houston Public Media

“Thoughtful, incisive programming… visually arresting… brilliantly executed...”
