(Rescheduled) SAXOPOTAMUS: A Musical Story Hour

Saturday, December 19, 2020

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This event has been rescheduled from Friday, December 11th to Saturday, December 19th due to rain. 

Moores Music in the City presents this event in collaboration with Rev. Ed Jones and the Trinity United Methodist Church. SAXOPOTAMUS: A Musical Story Hour is a concert suitable for children, young families, and the young at heart. This 45-minute concert presents children’s stories told by a narrator and saxophone quartet. For this special holiday presentation, the event will also include several Christmas music favorites.

Houston’s own Kazakou Quartet (Nick Bissen, Ellie Parker, Masahito Sugihara, and Evan Whitner) will collaborate with soprano Shannon Murray to present familiar stories like “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” and the original story of Saxopotamus, the whimsical tale of the invention of the saxophone, as told by Hippos! These works are composed by renowned British saxophonist and composer Paul Harvey and produced by Ellie Parker.

The outdoor concert will take place at 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot across the street from Trinity United Methodist Church at 2600 Holman St., Houston, TX 77004. We ask that our audience practice social distancing and remain masked during the event.
