Celebrating 50 Years of the Rothko Chapel
Celebrating Rothko Chapel's 50th Anniversary
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Houston’s iconic modernist sanctuary, Rothko Chapel, DACAMERA commissions and presents the world premiere of a major work from genre-defying avant-garde composer/percussionist Tyshawn Sorey. The chapel’s Rothko paintings and world-renowned commitment to non-denominational spirituality and the pursuit of human rights match Sorey’s own musical and social activism and his highly coloristic and sensitive experimental aesthetic. Recently described by Alex Ross in the New Yorker as a “defiant identity on the border between classical music and jazz,” Sorey embodies the boundary-breaking humanist ideals of the Chapel and the multi-genre musical and interdisciplinary performances which DACAMERA embraces in its productions and presentations.
