Unsilent Night

Thursday, December 11
Sabine Promenade
6–9 pm

Join BBP, in collaboration with the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston and Musiqa for a free interactive holiday event, Unsilent Night from 6–9 pm, 7 pm is when the "music parade" begins. New York composer, Phil Kline, created this 43 minute piece, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music that can easily be downloaded on your smartphone. When participants play their different "parts" simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece.

Revelers will walk a carefully chosen route along the new trails along Buffalo Bayou Park. Prior to the musical parade, St. Arnold Brewing Company will be serving up some tasty local brew and root beer, hot chocolate from Katz Coffee and a visit from Santa!
