Though he was strictly a "panpipes and lyres" kind of guy, Plato was spot on about music: "Music," he said, "gives ... wings to the mind, flight to the imagination." Ars Lyrica Houston, the acclaimed ensemble dedicated to music of the 17th and 18th centuries, explores the connection between flights of notes and aerial acrobatics in its latest concert, Flying High. French and Italian baroque chamber works animate this season opener, including G. F. Handel's evocative Tra le fiamme featuring French-Italian soprano Céline Ricci and viola da gambist Mary Springfels. Escape gravity's pull -- in your imagination at least -- during this airy musical meditation at Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Ars Lyrica Houston
Ars Lyrica Houston (ALH) offers audiences a broad range of music from the 17th and 18th centuries, on period instruments and with careful attention to period style and context. Ars Lyrica, which means “lyric art,” performs on period instruments because they produce a sweeter, more intimate sound than their modern equivalents and are better suited to the performance of Baroque music especially. Founded in 1998 by harpsichordist and conductor Matthew Dirst and incorporated in 2003 as a 501©(3) organization, this Grammy-nominated ensemble offers a yearly series of programs at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Houston and also performs regularly at other area and national venues.
