Be on the listen for Houston Music Highlights, Tuesday through Friday on Houston Public Media Classical! These 6-minute highlights feature local musicians and ensembles such as the Houston Symphony, the Apollo Chamber Players, and numerous others each week. Houston Music Highlights air at 7 AM, and then repeat at 1 PM, 6 PM, and 10 PM.
This week, Highlights include covers of Prince hits, as a tribute to the late, great pop artist and musician. Plus, we celebrate National Chamber Music Month with performances by two acclaimed local groups — Context, from whose recent season-finale concert we'll hear an excerpt; and Apollo Chamber Players, which has a concert this Sunday!
