The future of Houston’s art scene – Houston Public Media
It is a historic and pivotal period for all of us, including the world of the arts.
Many Houston arts groups have gradually branched out into live performances and reopened arts spaces over the past year and months.
This fall, many will finally be returning to the stage for full seasons in person.
How will local arts groups evolve after the pandemic?
How has the last year changed their art forms?
And what is the future of performing arts, equity and community and national impact?
Some organizations are rebuilding, innovating and even welcoming new leaders.
Today, directors from the Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Symphony and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston join us, all of whom recently announced new directors.
They discuss their visions, lessons learned, and the future of Houston’s art scene.
Catherine Lu is the guest host of this episode.
The guests are:
- Houston Grand Opera’s new Managing Director and CEO, who will take office in January 2022
- Houston Symphony Executive Director and CEO, speaking about newly appointed Music Director Juraj Valcuha – who begins his role as Music Director in the 2022-2023 season
Town Square with Ernie Manouse is a gathering space for the community to come together and discuss the most important and pressing issues of the day.
Audio for today’s show will be available after 5 p.m. CT. We also offer a free podcast here, on iTunes and other apps.
