I am creating a new sculpture for the Houston Choral Society for their special 20th Anniversary event to be held in the Cullen Theater at the Wortham Center. They will present a commissioned work by Adolphus Hailstork. This concert is a fund-raising event for Neighborhood Centers Inc., a private, nonprofit agency that provides social services to hundreds of thousands of Houston’s low-income children, families and senior citizens.
Here is some information about the event on the Neighborhood centers web site.
Hands Across Houston
Please join us on the evening of Friday, May 2 at 7:30pm in the Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater for the Houston Choral Society’s world premiere of “Set Me on a Rock – Songs of Sanctuary from the Great Flood,” a commissioned work by noted composer Dr. Adolphus Hailstork. This composition is the centerpiece of a concert entitled “Hands Across Houston,” which commemorates Houston’s courageous response to our Gulf Coast neighbors in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
This concert celebrates the Houston Choral Society’s 20th anniversary, and all proceeds will benefit Neighborhood Centers Inc. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children, students and senior citizens. Sponsorship packages are also available. Please e-mail us for more information on how you can be a part of this extraordinary event.
The sculpture depicts a woman and child on a rock. The photograph shows the roughed in version that I sent the client. They enlarged the requested that the sculpture should be enlarged to 7′
