Artist-Led; Artist Curated

Now in its ninth 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.


Accessible Artistry


Monarch Chamber Players is a collective of Houston-based professional musicians committed to taking classical chamber music out of the concert hall and into accessible community spaces. 

Founded in October 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Monarch presents over 80 concerts annually. The ensemble has brought classical music to over 25 Houston neighborhoods, performing at a variety of venues including parks, churches, farms, gas stations, traditional indoor venues, and front porches. 


"Incredibly, a new chamber music collective has exploded onto the Houston performing arts scene despite the inhospitable pandemic environment... the ensemble has performed over 60 outdoor concerts since last October, taking music directly to the people, popping up in neighborhood parks, cul-de-sacs, and church lots, and just as often on people’s front yards, porches, and driveways." -- Arts +Culture Texas
