On this episode of Encore Houston, we feature a concert entirely made up of songs by living, Texas-based composers performed by soprano Julia Fox and pianist Keith Weber, as part of Grace Song, Inc.. During this 2016 Texas Tour, Fox and Weber performed around the state, with a song that pokes fun at opera stereotypes, works featuring a broad range of poetry including three in Japanese, and a collection of epitaphs that range from solemn to humorous. This specific performance is from their homecoming concert at the end of the tour, performed at Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church.
