Chorus pro Musica and the Sonic Liberation Players join forces for a rare performance of Morton Feldman’s breathtaking “Rothko Chapel,” plus works of Anthony R. Green, Mozart, Hagen, Betinis, and DiOrio.


"Rothko Chapel," the centerpiece of the concert, was commissioned for and premiered at the titular chapel in Houston, Texas in 1972.  It is a place for “people of all faiths or none,” and home to 14 monumental paintings by the abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko, Feldman’s close friend.


Feldman composed his musical interpretation of the chapel– for soprano, alto, mixed chorus, celesta, percussion, and viola–for a unique venue and its inimitable vast paintings that inspired the sound world we hear. Coming to this ecumenical place, people of all walks of life can think, grieve, heal, and be transformed, mostly in silence, by the space and Rothko’s paintings.
