Upcoming Events

Unsilent Night

Unsilent Night

Thursday, December 11

Time: 6–9 pm; parade begins at 7 pm
Location: Sabine Promenade
Cost: Free; please RSVP to the event

Join us and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts for a free interactive holiday event, Unsilent Night. New York composer, Phil Kline, created this 43-minute piece written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. Unsilent Night takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant will download one of four tracks of music onto their smart phone prior to their arrival (RSVP above and we will email you the link to download closer to the event.) When participants play their different “parts” simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece.

Revelers will walk a carefully chosen route along Buffalo Bayou Park starting at Sabine Promenade, with holiday stations along the way including cookies, hot chocolate, and beer! The parade will officially begin at 7 pm.
