Mercury’s Neighborhood Series offers intimate, hour-long concerts in outstanding and convenient locations across Houston. These casual and affordable concerts are designed to inspire and energize all who attend.
Mercury opens its 2017-2018 Neighborhood Series with Bach and Mendelssohn.
Bach’s darkly dramatic side shines in this concert – featuring his most famous work, his Toccata and Fugue, here performed by solo violin for a new, fascinating take on this favorite.
The Passacaglia, arranged for Strings, complements this perfectly – along with a lovely, expressive and unabashedly warm Octet by Mendelssohn – a composer who championed Bach in his lifetime.
Experience them all in four unique, intimate venues across Houston.
