Apollo Chamber Players: Apollo MoonShot

Apollo Chamber Players presents Apollo MoonShot, celebrating the ensemble’s multicultural programming and the conclusion of its Moonshot-inspired 20×2020 commissioning project. Program includes new works by Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon, Emmy-winning Chickasaw composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, Turkish-born composer Erberk Eryilmaz, and Prairie View A&M faculty composer John Cornelius. Special guests include Houston Poet Laureate Outspoken Bean, vocalist Kenneth Gayle and astronaut narrator John Herrington, the first Native American to fly in space.

“Apollo is honored to showcase new works by composers who’ve helped us achieve MoonShot dreams as President Kennedy said “not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” We recognize the inspiring multiculturalism and can-do spirit of our home, Space City Houston, along with the enduring global beauty of Texas and our great nation.”
-Matthew J. Detrick, Apollo Founder & Director
