Singer songwriter Teresa Kolo hits the stage at Anderson Fair

Seattle for a concert of original songs at one of her absolute-favorite Houston
venues, Anderson Fair, 2007 Grant Street, Houston, Texas 77006.

his own compositions.

 

“Every
time I play there, I get shivers,” Kolo said. “Partly, it’s the history of all
the masterful songwriters that have done their thing there. Also, the sound in
that room is crazy amazing. It’s like a warm bath of sparkly vibrations…yum
yum.”

WindSync presents “Voyager”


Voyager

Location: Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston, Matchbox 4

3400 Main St.

Date: Friday, October 27, 2017

Time: 8:00 PM



WindSync presents “Voyager”, a space-themed concert combining music, multimedia, and science. The program commemorates the 40th anniversary of NASA’s Voyager interstellar mission, which carried the sights and sounds of Earth into the solar system and beyond. WindSync will perform music included on the Voyager Golden Records, curated by a committee led by astrophysicist Carl Sagan, interspersed with audio recordings of natural events and projected images. The quintet will also share cosmically-inspired classical music from a time when space travel was only a dream, including Offenbach’s “Overture to A Trip to the Moon” and excerpts of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”.



The program will feature a mini-lecture from space scientist Dr. Paul Schenk. Before serving as participating scientist for NASA’s DAWN and Cassini missions and working as a co-investigator for the New Horizons mission to Pluto, Schenk was an intern during the Voyager 2 Jupiter encounter. He will introduce the audience to the Voyager mission, discuss its major scientific and philosophical advances, and share some of the “music” that it has sent back to Earth in the form of data.
