Fall under the spell of the hypnotic rhythms of SamulNori, the world-famous Korean percussion group. Group founder Kim Duk-Soo, master of the Changgo (hourglass-shaped drum), has assembled an entrancing band of dancing percussionists who play music based on 5,000-year-old Korean shamanist traditions. Let your jaw drop as the drummers leap, spin and walk around the stage, all while producing music of the highest order. For select numbers, the musicians don hats topped with exotic plumes and colorful streamers that add brilliant splashes of color to an already exciting show. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: MercuryTwelve years ago, Antoine Plante, Jonathan Godfrey, Ana Treviňo-Godfrey and Lori Muratta aspired to enchant and educate Houston audiences with a broad repertoire of music on period instruments. Gathered over pizza in Montrose, the four established Mercury Baroque, an intimate chamber ensemble. Today, that ensemble has blossomed into a chamber orchestra playing music from the Baroque era and beyond, reaching thousands across Houston and garnering critical acclaim around the world.
Through its innovative and accessible performances, domestic and international tours, and groundbreaking music education outreach programs, Mercury has redefined the role of music in the Houston community by emphasizing accessibility and education. Mercury performs over fifty concerts each year, including its flagship series at the Wortham Center, Cullen Theater, concerts in neighborhood venues across the city, and chamber music performances in more intimate settings.
Mercury is also dedicated to educating future audiences and training the city's future musicians. The Orchestra's educational outreach programs have reached more than 10,000 children in the past five years alone, fostering a love for classical music in our next generation, as well as providing them with a meaningful opportunity for personal growth.
From its humble beginnings over pizza, Mercury is now firmly established as a musical icon of Houston's vibrant culture. The Orchestra continues to reach out to new audiences with an approachable, fresh interpretation of classical music.
